Richard Jackson's Fundraiser:

Spaulding Rehab Find Your Strength

Hello Everyone and thank you for checking out my donation page.  I first ran a marathon last year in honor of my father at the Marine Corps Marathon.  After completion I told my self I would never run another marathon.  No need.  That all changed given the events that occurred at the Boston Marathon last year.   For me I was lucky and had no one in my immediate circle of family and friends that were affected.  Others were obviously not so lucky.  

I had spent the previous 2 and a half years of my work life working on the new Spaulding Rehab Hospital in Charlestown as a construction manager.  We were just putting the final touches on the building when the awful incident occurred.  I soon came to realize that the completion of the project had much greater meaning and that this brand new state of the art facility was going to be something that will greatly help those directly affected by the tragedy.    During the next few months I saw a few of the victims around the building as they began their rehab.  It was inspriring to see the positive attitude and strength of these people. 

As soon as I heard Spaulding had a marathon team I put my name in the lottery.  This marathon will be an experience I will never forget.  I am thankful to spaulding for the opportunity to participate and ask that you all help with support of this great organization through donations. 

Any donation is appreciated to this worthy cause.  

Thank you,
