Welcome to the Falmouth Road Race 2020 – At Home Edition
Spaulding Cape Cod: Official Wheelchair Division Sponsor since 2015.
Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Cape Cod is excited to support the Falmouth Road Race - At-home Edition during this challenging time.
As we’ve all rallied to respond to COVID-19, Spaulding Cape Cod has kept the safety of our patients and families, staff and the community as a top priority. From virtual medical and therapy appointments and a virtual family visitation program to virtual conditioning, wellness and social programs for our adaptive sports community, we’ve been with you. That’s why we’re continuing our support of the iconic Falmouth Road Race. Because rehab isn’t only about what happens during treatment, it’s about what happens in the rest of life.
Please join us to be part of this important event to safely connect and strengthen us all.
Return to this page often for new content, invitations to virtual events, training tips from physical therapists, inspiring videos and more.
On behalf of the Spaulding Cape Cod staff and the entire Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, we extend heartfelt thanks to all the first responders, front-line and support health care staff, and all the community-based workers providing essential services that have supported our hospitals and community during this challenging time.
