Realizing my dream of finishing the Boston Marathon while also helping the hospital find cures for debilitating diseases is a win-win.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 14, 2014

Farpoint Ventures Co-Founder and Managing Partner Jim Ryan will run in his second Boston Marathon one week from today on April 21, 2014. Last year, Mr. Ryan was running through Kenmore Square, less than a mile from the finish line, when the horrible terrorist bombing occurred.

Mr. Ryan is raising money for the Brigham & Women's Hospital Charity Team. You can donate to this cause by visiting Mr. Ryan's Crowdrise Page.

"Given Farpoint's close involvement with medical innovation and technology in Boston, it's natural that we would support Brigham & Women's Hospital in their marathon fund raiser" said Mr. Ryan. "Realizing my dream of finishing the Boston Marathon while also helping the hospital find cures for debilitating diseases is a win-win."

Including last year's Boston Marathon, this will be Mr. Ryan's third Marathon. He successfully completed the Cape Cod Marathon in 2012.
