BENEFITING: CHILDREN'S SPECIALIZED HOSPITAL FOUNDATION INC
EVENT: NYC Half 2013
EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2013
I am running my first half-marathon to benefit Children’s Specialized Hospital, the preeminent provider of pediatric rehabilitation services and the largest pediatric rehabilitation health system in the United States.
Children’s Specialized Hospital serves children affected by brain injury, spinal cord dysfunction and injury, premature birth, autism, developmental delays, and life-changing illnesses. Its renowned therapeutic programs include physical, speech, and occupational therapy; psychology services; neurodevelopmental physician services; recreational therapy and child life, and a full complement of support services.
The Mountainside, NJ, facility is very close to my home and I've had the opportunity to volunteer my time there helping the residents with art projects. My first visit impacted me more than I ever thought possible and was an experience I’ll never forget. I left there appreciating the good health of my children more than ever.
