UMass nurse runs Boston Marathon to raise money for ALS

Shrewsbury - Thin Aung, 30, is a registered nurse at UMass Medical Center, University Campus. It is what she refers to as her “dream job.” She works the overnight shift in the medical intensive care unit where she takes care of patients with both rare and common diseases. It is here that Aung has come to know her patients and their families on a personal level - sometimes sharing experiences that have made a lasting impression on her. One such experience with a patient with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) motivated Aung, an avid runner, to do more to help. On Monday, April 20, she will run the Boston Marathon for the UMass ALS Cellucci Fund.
