He will be raising money and running the marathon for the Brigham & Women's Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Trauma Center. The BWH Stepping Stone Center was formed after the Boston Marathon Bombings and has a mission of transforming outcomes for civilian and military heroes worldwide who have suffered devastating traumatic injuries.
In February of this year, Beta Lambda lost one of their brothers due to a traumatic injury in a snowboarding accident, which lead to the support of this organization.
"My goal is to assist The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Trauma Center in their efforts to turn tragedy into hope for families and individuals daily," said John.
