THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Colleagues-

I've done it before and I have decided to do it again! This will be my sixth Boston Marathon run for Spaulding  and this year I am running with an ambitious goal to raise $50,000 for Spaulding’s Capital Campaign. The Marathon will take place only 12 days before we move patients into our fabulous new hospital in Charlestown. The new Spaulding makes a bold statement in support of our mission to improve quality of life for people with physical disabilities and their families and will match the quality and stature of our world renowned clinicians, researchers and educators. The new highly sustainable, completely patient centered Spaulding will serve as a national model of inclusive design and will serve as a beacon of hope and recovery for thousands of courageous patients and families. It will also serve as an inspiring environment to train future generations of leading rehabilitation professionals and a dynamic milieu for cutting edge clinical research to advance the science of rehabilitation medicine.

This year I have the added pleasure of being joined by my 24 year old son, Max, who will be running his first Boston Marathon on the Spaulding Team. Max (who was a cross country and track runner and leader in high school) and I have run together since he was an infant in a baby jogger. In my previous five Boston Marathons, Max would meet me near heartbreak hill and run with me for about seven miles to provide me with the added moral support and energy in the final and most challenging part of the race. It is incredibly meaningful to me as his father and as President of Spaulding that he has made this commitment to run the entire 26.2 miles this year to support Spaulding.

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

-David

As our Race for Rehab Marathon Team trains to complete the historic 26.2 miles in April, Spaulding is getting closer to crossing another finish line. 

In April 2013, Spaulding will move to a brand new facility in Charlestown.  This state-of-the-art facility will be a special resource for Greater Boston, New England, and beyond. It will greatly enhance clinical capacities, provide comfortable and accessible patient accommodations, promote a truly transformative clinical research enterprise, and be a source of aesthetic enjoyment for the community.

Located on a beautiful site with harbor views and dock facilities for therapeutic water sports and community use. The design supports a holistic therapeutic approach that will help restore patients’ independence and facilitate their transition back into the community, while at the same time welcoming the public, at all levels of ability and mobility.

Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital's journey started in 1970. Now, one of the largest and most sophisticated rehabilitation networks in the United States, Spaulding provides comprehensive rehabilitation services.  With the flagship location in Boston, MA, the network is made up of Spaulding Boston, Spaulding Cape Cod, Spaulding North Shore, Spaulding Cambridge, 23 outpatient centers and two skilled nursing facilities throughout Massachusetts.

Our dedicated team of specialists help patients get back into the action of their every day lives as soon as possible – often with astonishing results. Our motto, "Find Your Stength" reflects this mission.  The Race for Rehab team will Find Their Strength as they take on this amazing endeavor - and we can't wait to greet them at the finish in April 2013.
