EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Family & Friends,
I'm extremely excited to be participating in the 2015 Boston Marathon as a member of the Spaulding Race for Rehab Team.
Having grown up in Massachusetts, running in the Boston Marathon is something I've always dreamed about doing. To me, taking part in this historic event is not only about pushing myself to my physical limits but, more importantly, its about running for those who can't.
Spaulding has a long history of helping individuals and their families recover from traumatic injuries. From my all time favorite New England Patriot, Tedy Bruschi, to the 32 patients who were impacted by the tragic events of the 2013 Boston Marathon. Day in and day out Spaulding's dedicated team of professionals help individuals and their families get back on their feet.
I feel fortunate to be a part of such committed group and to be running for such a worthy cause.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my page,
Running for a Purpose:
Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital is proud to once again partner with John Hancock as part of their non-profit marathon program. In 2014, our Race for Rehab team members raised over $775,000 to support Spaulding - providing advancements to patient care, teaching, research and capital improvements. For the past 9 years, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital has recruited more than 225 individuals, who have raised 2 million dollars in support of the hospital.
We are so thankful for the hard work and dedication of all of our runners, as well as the friends and family members who support them.
Spaulding's 2014 team, the largest team in Spaulding's history, was dedicated to all those that were impacted by the tragic events of the 2013 Boston Marathon. Spaulding’s new facility in the Charlestown Navy Yard opened two weeks following the Marathon bombing serving 32 inpatients, including 15 who endured amputations and would need to learn how to walk on prosthetic limbs. Spaulding’s mantra, Find Your Strength, has never been more appropriate. Spaulding was there to help the survivors find their strength, and will be there for every patient who needs us in the future.
