BCRR Member Camille Boon off to Volunteer in Haiti

Camille Boon has had a busy and eventful week. She ran her fourth marathon (and first since giving birth to son Ernest) last Sunday and PRed with a 4:02 (unfortunately her D-tag fell off so it's not official). She was highlighted in Roberta MacInnis's Runners Notebook column in the Houston Chronicle (another kind of PR)....AND she arranged to travel to Haiti to engage in medical relief for earthquake victims along with her husband John. Camille, the daughter of long time BCRR Member Kathryn Vidal, is an alumna of Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine. She is now an OB/Gyn in private practice here in Houston and has spent time in Haiti previously as a student at Rice. (Please read more about Rice's Medical intervention program LEAP and Camille here. ) The Boons left for Haiti on Sunday the 26th and will be there for one week, but Camille wishes she could stay longer (hard to do with a small child waiting at home).

Camille, we are so proud of you and wish you a safe trip. (Maybe we can do something about that "unofficial" marathon time)

  1. Thanks so much! I just saw this! We had a great trip, and made many friends and memories. To top it off, the Houston Marathon added me back into the official results!
