Dr. Janet Green has donated $100,000 to the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation after undergoing a successful fourth shoulder surgery at the Vancouver hospital last May.
She has been recognized as a major donor of the new St. Paul’s Hospital under construction at the Jim Pattison Medical Centre at Vancouver’s False Creek Flats — the largest hospital redevelopment project in B.C.’s history.
Finally free of shoulder pain, the Courtenay marathoner still hopes to run Boston and London in October, and the Vancouver virtual in May. If the event goes ahead with limited numbers in October, it will be Green’s 24th Boston Marathon.
An arthritic knee diagnosed 21 years ago is now more of a problem, which leads Green to believe her long marathon career will end within the next few years with a knee replacement.
