My Fundraising Page
Hello! My name is Celeste Fetter and I will be running the Boston Marathon on April 18, 2022 as part of the Brigham and Women's Stepping Strong Team! As a senior nursing student at Pace University, and aspiring trauma nurse, I am honored to be a part of this team. When you support me, you are helping the Brigham turn tragedy into hope for civilian and military heroes worldwide who have suffered devastating traumatic injuries.
In 2013, Boston was changed forever when a beautiful Marathon Monday turned into a senseless tragedy. Gillian Reny, only a few years younger than me, was one of the 39 critically injured patients rushed to Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where doctors and nurses saved her life and both of her legs. In gratitude to the Brigham, the Reny family established The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation to help other trauma patients like Gillian regain their strength and ability to step strong once again.
The mission of The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation is to inspire groundbreaking innovation, effective prevention, and compassionate intervention to transform care for civilians and military heroes who endure traumatic injuries and events. Stepping Strong funded initiatives are making a profound difference for trauma patients and their families worldwide. To date, the center has raised more than $24 million. But much more needs to be done.
Thank you for supporting me, Gillian, Brigham and the Boston Strong spirit!
