THE STORY:

Boston Marathon 2015…HERE I COME!   After a ten year hiatus from marathons, I am excited to announce that I will run for Spaulding’s Race for Rehab 2015 team. I am running in support of the patients, the employees and for all of those who were affected by the Marathon bombing of 2013.

Spaulding has been my place of practice for 14 years.  I have had many amazing opportunities to grow at Spaulding and am proud to support our work there.  I believe that we are a group that holds the standards of healthcare high and strive to improve the lives of many in countless ways from inpatient to outpatient.  One of my favorite opportunities at Spaulding is working as the Spaulding’s Race for Rehab team Physical Therapist. I have been part of the team for the past seven years, supporting many through the training process both physically and mentally. Now I am asking YOU to help me support this team! 

April 2013’s marathon was supposed to be like all the others and I will never forget what I saw that day. My job in 2014 was to return to the Mandarin to support the team and move past those memories.

This year, 2015, I want to run for those who can’t, for those who will, and for those who will never dream of it but will support me through it!

I run for my colleagues; from the smiling faces who greet our patients to those who treat.  WE are who our patients come to see to improve their lives.  WE are the strength they seek to make their lives more manageable, less painful and more fulfilling. With this run I challenge us all to grow, improve and be the best we can for our patients.

I run for my patients.  There are numerous patients who have touched me over the years.  I have seen great successes and I have shared some trials. I have seen patients completely change their lives due to my interventions. My patients challenge me, make me problem solve and think outside the box.  I appreciate the growth each one has given me and I hope that they all can say “I found my strength” with Jenn at Spaulding.

I run for my family.  My husband supports me through all of our endeavors. I want my children to see their mom not only finish the marathon, but raise money for a community I believe in.  I run for my mom who put the bug in my ear 5 years ago when she asked me if I would give “it” another try.  She thought I was crazy the first three times, but she loved the Boston Marathon as if it was her race and loved having me in the field.

NOW, running Boston seems like an enormous feat.  I am older, wiser to the aches of my body that is not nearly as fit as it was...but, our patients endure much more than I will with this training. It is my goal to not only support Spaulding’s Race for Rehab team, but to be a teammate to raise hope and awareness for excellence in healthcare.

NO donation is too small or TOO LARGE!  Please consider donating a gift that will help to change someone’s life. 

FIND YOUR STRENTH and Consider a gift donation of:  $26.20 for every mile ($29 if you count the miles I have to walk to the start!)  $119 for the 119 running of the marathon OR $2015 for the year! 

THANK YOU for your support!!!!

Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital wrote -

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 200 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.
