Congratulations and thank you!

Congratulations to our 444 runners for completing the B.A.A. 10K with the Brigham yesterday! It was so amazing to see all your smiling faces as you crossed the finish line!

Kudos to Strides for Sarcoma, our top fundraising AND largest team! Any many thanks to the 50 teams who joined us for this fun Brigham tradition this year. Because of you, the Brigham raised more than $200,000 to support 42 areas across the Brigham and Faulkner – and the donations keep coming in! THANK YOU!
