In 2014, the Mass General Marathon Team received additional entries to raise money for MGH’s Emergency Response Department in recognition of the lifesaving response of hospital employees following the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. The MGH runners supporting Emergency Medicine have raised more than $3.3 million in eight years, providing critical funding to the hospital’s emergency medicine and disaster preparedness efforts that benefit victims worldwide.
Marathon funds support the training and resources needed to develop a carefully integrated response that spans multiple departments throughout the hospital and ensures that Mass General is ready for the next disaster – be it man-made or natural.
At Mass General, we take emergency planning very seriously. Preparing for that next disaster takes thoughtful training and lots of practice. Donors are critical to our success. Time spent training is not covered by insurance and often takes place outside work hours. Money raised by the Mass General Emergency Response Team allows Mass General to be Ready When Second’s Count.
