I’m very excited to be running the Boston Marathon for the Matty Eappen Foundation to help raise funds and awareness for this amazing charity! I will also be completing my World Marathon Majors journey in Boston…6 years in the making.
The Matty Eappen Foundation was established to improve the safety and welfare of children by educating the public about the dangers of shaking a child and to provide assistance to victims and their families.
This charity is very near and dear to my heart given the work I do to care for victims of child abuse as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in the Pediatric ICU. These injuries to infants and children are 100% preventable through education on shaken baby syndrome which this foundation aims to provide.
Please consider making a donation to this well deserving charity to help protect the most innocent population in our communities.
