My name is Emily and I am a Registered Nurse at Spaulding Hospital Cambridge. I am honored to announce that I will be running the 2015 Boston Marathon with the Spaulding Race for Rehab Team.
This has been a very exciting year from graduating college to starting my first career to preparing for my first marathon! As members of the 2015 Race for Rehab Team, we are running for those who can’t. I am grateful for this opportunity to join not only the Spaulding 2015 Boston Marathon Team, but also the reputation of the hospital's longstanding mission and inspiration that its work continues to represent each day. I am looking forward to the journey and challenges that lie ahead in the upcoming year!
I am so excited to be part of this team and to participate in the best race in the world!Thank you so much for your support and consideration in making a donation towards my fundraising goal of $5,000 to support the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.

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.
