Tom's Fundraising Page
Hello, I'm Tom!
On October 7th, I will be running the 2018 BAA Half Marathon, in support of Boston Medical Center (BMC). I have been running since I was 12 years old, and this will be my third half marathon. This is my first time running for a cause, and I am excited to be raising money for BMC's comprehensive addiction treatment programs. We all know someone whose life has been touched by addiction, and now more than ever it is crucial that we fund effective programs to help those battling this disease. BMC is on the forefront of this fight, and offers several groundbreaking treatment programs (see below for more information). Currently, I am a PhD student at Boston University studying Neuroscience. As part of my program, I have had the pleasure of working with and learning from some of the great research scientists and clinicians at BMC. In our lab, we use MRI to study how memories are stored and retrieved in the brain. You can learn more about my research on my website www.tmmorin.com.
Information About Team BMC
Team BMC runs the BAA Half Marathon in support of Boston Medical Center’s (BMC) comprehensive addiction treatment programs. With a premier system of integrated care that stands as a national model, BMC represents a glimmer of hope to end the epidemic. BMC understands substance use can affect anyone, at any age and any point in life. Therefore, it offers evidence-based, comprehensive treatment tailored to meet the unique needs of its patients—everything from addressing substance use during pregnancy (Project RESPECT) to early onset addiction in adolescents (CATALYST Clinic) and urgent care needs for patients seeking immediate help (Faster Paths). With a wide array of programs, patients receive effective, individualized care, ensuring the best possible outcomes. Central to BMC’s care is an unwavering commitment to provide healing to those struggling with substance use and to build healthier communities. Leading the charge in addiction medicine for more than 25 years, BMC’s excellence in prevention, treatment, training and research makes it a source for new and innovative ways to care for patients and serves as an important liaison to combat substance use disorders. BMC will continue to fight this heartbreaking battle until families no longer have to feel the pain of losing a loved one to a substance use disorder. It goes without saying that no other hospital is better equipped to make this goal a reality. Thank you for supporting BMC’s mission to provide exceptional care, without exception—your donation to Team BMC will make a difference in the lives of BMC's most vulnerable patients.
