2024 Boston 10K presented by Brigham and Women's Hospital

Put Your Breast Foot Forward

Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), a founding member of Mass General Brigham and a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, and Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital (BWFH) provide compassionate, high-quality care in virtually every medical and surgical specialty to patients locally, regionally, nationally and around the world. Every day, our clinicians, researchers, and caregivers work to find new ways to predict, prevent, and treat the most challenging diseases of our time while delivering world-class care with a profoundly human touch. 

BWFH provides a patient-centered approach to breast cancer detection, prevention, patient and staff education, research, and treatment, making it one of the leading centers for breast health care in New England and throughout the country. In the decades since its establishment in 1971, the center has cared for well over 100,000 patients. What makes this center unique, however, is not the number of patients seen, but the exceptional care that patients receive every day.

The Breast Imaging and Diagnostics Center represents the hospital’s next chapter in expert breast medicine. The center houses new 3-D mammography technology, diagnostics and more. Patients have the option of either a standard mammogram, for which they can receive same-day results, or 3-D mammography. Each stage of their care is carefully coordinated among specialists to provide seamless care and help reduce stress and anxiety for both the patient and their family.

To help breast cancer patients manage their care effectively – while reducing their uncertainty and fear – the Breast Center at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital has launched the Patient Navigator program.

Patient Navigator staff are dedicated to helping patients move through the entire medical process. Drawing on deep knowledge and experience, they provide detailed clinical information and practical help with the challenges of managing their care. And, with insight and empathy, they provide trained emotional support, helping patients working through the personal and interpersonal challenges created by their diagnosis.

Our Brigham 10K Teammates are proud to fuel quality patient care, innovative training, and life-changing discoveries that will benefit patients here in Boston and around the world, all in support of an area that is meaningful to them.

Thank you for supporting this extraordinary group of runners.
