My name is Meg and I am a Registered Nurse at Spaulding Hospital Cambridge, as well as Norwood Hospital. I am so honored to have been selected to run the 2015 Boston Marathon with the Spaulding Race for Rehab Team. I am looking forward to this amazing journey and all its challenges!
Running for a Purpose: We're running for those who can't. As an RN I do my best to give the greatest quality care my patients deserve each and every day. I also try and lead by example; if I can prove to my patients that I can set my mind to strive toward challenging goals and work hard at achieving them, it will motivate them to do so as well!
I ask you to please consider making a donation to support our patients within the Spaulding Network and to help me to reach my goal!
Thank you all so much!! :0)
A note from Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital:
Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital is proud to once again they are partnered with John Hancock as part of their non-profit marathon program. Over the past 3 years, 145 members of the Race for Rehab Team raised over $1 million to support Spaulding's Annual Fund, dedicated to providing support to the hospital's most pressing needs including: 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.
