Meet our 2020 Boston Marathon team:

Erik Johnson

Erik joined the BID Needham Board of Advisors in October 2019 and will run the marathon in memory of his son Davis who passed away suddenly in 2010 - Davis’ 14th birthday would have been April 20, 2020.

Sofia Buckle

A student at the Rivers School, Sofia is the youngest team member. Her father, Dr. David Buckle, sits on the Board of Trustees at BID Needham and has been a physician here for over 20 years. Sofia says she is running as a personal challenge and to further improve the lives of our patients at BID Needham.

Mary Richman

Since she can remember Mary has run – with her brother, with her team, or just for herself. Mary is running for BID Needham this year to celebrate the amazing support the hospital gives her ‘little village’ and everyone across our service area.

2019 Boston Marathon

Congratulations to Dr. Robin Colgrove, who represented BID Needham in the 2019 Boston Marathon!

"As a 20-year Needhamite and on-staff physician at BID Needham whose family members have been patients, it was a pleasure and an honor to represent BID Needham in the 123rd running of the Boston Marathon," said Robin Colgrove, MD. "After so much time and effort preparing for this race, I will carry the memory of rounding the corner at Hereford and Boylston, running through the cheering crowds down the home stretch to the finish line with me forever. Thanks, everyone, for all your support.”
