Dear family and friends,
On Sunday, August 18, I will be joining hundreds of runners, in the Falmouth Road Race on the Spaulding Race for Rehab team. I am both excited and nervous for the next two months of training and fundraising - it will be hard work and I am hoping you will support me!
A Spaulding Race for Rehab donation does so much for those who are recovering or learning to live fully with illness, injury, and disabilities
Learning to do things differently than others can be a challenge, being told you cannot do something because of limitation is something I faced this past year. I experienced an eye stroke and was told I could not do many things I would typically not think twice about doing. I hated being held back because of a health issue. My situation although minor in comparison others, showed me first hand how to appreciate being able to do what you want when you want. Running does not come naturally and this will be tough, but there are others who would like to do this run but cannot because of their own limitations. Which is why I am going to do it!
Spaulding has been helpful to so many people, my family has had to lean on Spaulding for rehab purposes having their expertise in our backyard is something I am grateful for and feel strongly about supporting.
Thank you for your consideration!
SCC is again proud and excited to be the sponsor of the New Balance Falmouth Road Race Wheelchair Division.
