The unprecedented epidemic of opioid overdose and death is the most pressing public health crisis of our time, killing four Massachusetts residents each day. It is an inescapable fact that the opioid crisis is not happening to others—it is happening to each and every one of us, in our own backyards.

Boston Medical Center (BMC) has long led the charge, tackling addiction patient by patient with nationally-recognized, innovative services designed for individual needs. From programs tailored for young adolescents to urgent care that provides life-changing medications on the spot, Boston Medical Center has developed a premier system of integrated care that stands as a national model with promise to end the epidemic. They won’t stop until families no longer have to feel the pain of losing a loved one to addiction – no other hospital in our country is better equipped to make this goal a reality.
Team BMC athletes will help fight the opioid epidemic plaguing our community by raising funds to support BMC’s comprehensive treatment programs for young adults who have begun to experiment with substances, in the hopes of preventing addiction, as well as patients who have already developed a substance use disorder.
With the support of Columbia Threadneedle Investments and the Boston Triathlon, our goal is to raise $100,000 to support BMC’s addiction treatment programs that will save tens of thousands of lives each year.
