THE STORY:

It has been my dream for as long back as I can remember to run the Boston Marathon. Last year, I had decided, was the year that I was finally going to do it. My mom had been sick for a long time, and I was determined to run for her and for all of those that cannot run. Well, try as I did, I was unable to get the opportunity to run. I figured that perhaps this was a dream that may never happen.

Two months ago, my mom lost her 11 year battle to cancer. She fought long and she fought hard and she beat all the odds that were stacked against her time and time again. Doctors told her they were shocked that she had been able to fight for as long as she did, but she pushed through each and every time, until finally, her battle had come to an end.  It was then, after seeing her push through her challenges that I decided I would try, one last time, to run – in honor of her. I am happy and honored to announce that I have been selected to run and represent Spaulding Rehabilitation on their 2015 Race for Rehab team.

I realize that this will be a difficult challenge:  the training will be tough with many days of running in the New England cold and snow, but I also know that this is nothing compared to what others have to endure every day.  I am not only running for my mom, but for all those who cannot run the marathon , for all those who have been touched by some type of illness, whether it be a friend or a loved one. And for all those who have a goal they one day hope to achieve.

Please help support my efforts and Spaulding Rehab as we travel through this journey and raise money for a great cause. I will battle through the snow, rain and pain but I need everyone’s support to help me to the finish line and reach my fundraising goal of $10,000. These funds will provide treatment and new technologies and services to those who need them, so that they can recover, and build the strength needed get back on their feet and maybe run a marathon of their own.

No donation is too small and all are greatly appreciated.  I am looking forward to this journey and thank you all in advance for your ongoing support and generosity as I train for the 2015 Boston Marathon.

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 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.
