THE STORY:

In memory of my dad, the Robert J. Masterson Nursing Scholarship

I am currently training for my first half marathon. The preparation has proven to be a lot of fun, but it is also a lot more than that for me. I will be running in the Brooklyn Half Marathon on May 18th to raise money for a nursing scholarship in memory of my dad.

Two months ago my dad died of pancreatic cancer just a few weeks after he was diagnosed. In his honor, Mercy Hospital in Portland, ME, where he worked in the Intensive Care Unit for thirty years, has established the Robert J. Masterson Nursing Scholarship Fund. The fund will support nursing students throughout the state of Maine in paying for their nursing education. I'm proud to have my dad's name live on in this way. In addition to his many strengths and gifts--stonemasonry, building much of our home, and being a superb father--he was a dedicated nurse, a tireless advocate of compassionate care and family presence at the bedside. In the words of Mercy Hospital's CEO, Eileen Skinner, “Bob’s deep-seated faith and unwavering compassion for the vulnerable, especially the chronically homeless, set him apart."  Gifts to the Robert J. Masterson Nursing Scholarship Fund are tax-deductible and will be held in a restricted fund at Mercy c/o of the Mercy Development Office at 144 State Street in Portland, ME 04101. 

My fundraising goal: I am trying to raise $1 for every 10 meters I run.

My running goal: finish the half Marathon without stopping to walk, hopefully in under 2 hours.

You can donate on my half marathon fundraising website here (http://www.crowdrise.com/mastersonnursingscholarship), or directly to the Mercy Development Office at the address above.
