Love and gratitude from the Reny Family

Dear teammates,

While this year has taken many unexpected twists and turns, we are excited to have come together for the first ever Virtual Stepping Strong 5K yesterday! Knowing we ran and walked all over the world, with a unified purpose of helping trauma survivors is incredibly motivating and inspiring to all of us. Our family established The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation with a vision of transforming trauma research and care and your efforts enable us to fund the brilliant physician-scientists who are turning that vision into reality. 

Thank you for being a part of the Stepping Strong family, and for all you do to raise awareness and money for the center!

Please send photos to BWHteam@partners.org or post on social media using the hashtags #SteppingStrong and #RunningTogetherApart and follow/tag us on instagram @steppingstrongcenter.

With love and gratitude,

Audrey, Steven, Danielle, and Gillian Reny

We look forward to running and walking with you virtually on Saturday!
