2019 Boston Marathon

Our Consumer Underwriter, Matt Medeiros, braced the rainy weather and ran in the 2019 Boston Marathon! Matt’s trek began at around 11:00 a.m. on Monday morning and finished at 3:24 p.m. In total, Matt ran 10:14 minute miles and finished in just 4 hours and 28 minutes!

Matt was running on behalf of CU Kids at Heart, a charitable organization committed to funding research activities aimed at the prevention, treatment, and/or cure of pediatric neurological diseases. Through CU Kids at Heart, Matt met Vraj Purohit. Vraj is a seven year old boy who has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. This developmental disorder is caused by damage to the motor cortex of the brain which affects muscle control and coordination.

“The race was an awesome, life-changing experience! Being able to see Vraj a half-mile away from the finish line gave me the morale boost to push all the way to the end! This is something I will always hold near and dear to my heart and I can’t wait for next year!” – Matt Medeiros

Matt’s 26 mile journey was nothing short of an amazing accomplishment; and while race day may now be over, the new formed friendship between Matt and Vraj will continue for years to come.
