Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.
I am thrilled to combine two major interests in my life - mental health and running - by raising money for Brookline Mental Community Mental Health Center and running the Boston Marathon 2017.
I have chosen to raise money for Brookline Mental Community Mental Health Center as I am truly passionate about finding ways to improve mental health. In my professional life I do research in how to improve diseases in the brain and I have a particular strong commitment to help solving issues related to mental health. Living in Brookline, I feel privileged to be able to support a very strong local initiative within mental health and this is essential now more than ever.
At the same time I am excited to combine this effort with running Boston Marathon 2017, the most historic marathon. My entire life I have had a major focus on sports and in recent years primarily on long distance running. I have run three marathons and have become a very dedicated runner, and I am excited to prepare for Boston marathon, where my ambition is to set a new PB (which is currently 2.58).
