Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital was honored to have 52 runners take part in the 119th Boston Marathon as part of Spaulding's Race for Rehab team. The team was comprised of former patients, former patient's family members, Spaulding staff, community leaders, and rehabilitation advocates. The team raised over $400,000 for Spaulding. The funds raised by the team were used to support programs and services provided by Spaulding.
Since 2005 Spaulding has participated in the Boston Marathon with a team of runners, from 2009-2011 as an official charity of the Boston Athletic Association and then an official John Hancock charity beginning in 2012.
In 2005, David Storto, President of Spaulding, was the lone member of the team. Since then each year the team has continued to grow with over 100 runners as part of the 2014 team this past year. Each year, the team is comprised of former Spaulding patients and family members, Spaulding caregivers from across the Spaulding Rehab Network, members of Spaulding's Young Professionals Group, donors, and members of the community who believe in Spaulding's mission.
In total there are now over 300 of Race for Rehab alumni who have helped to raise over $2.5 million for programs and services at Spaulding.
