Dr. Victoria Arthur is running the Boston Marathon this year, not because she is devoted to running (she’s just beginning to train in earnest) or because she loves marathons (this is her first!). Victoria is running in memory of her brother Pete, and to give back to The Children’s Room, where her sister-in-law, Jen and her nephew, Jeffrey found solace and support after Pete’s death.

In her practice at Lexington Pediatrics, Victoria has often recommended TCR to families after the death of a parent or child. Now she is inspired to raise money to support The Children’s Room. She is motivated to help TCR continue to provide children and their families with a caring, safe environment and the resources to rebuild their lives after the loss of a loved one.

The Children’s Room welcomes all families, regardless of their ability to pay.
