The 7th SHrINE ON SPRINGFIELD walk for Shriners Hospitals for Children ~Springfield MA facility, will be held on Saturday June 13, 2015 on the Toonerville Trail ( trailhead at PCM Image-tech, 280 Clinton St Springfield, VT

Taylor Marie was born like most other babies: a full term, healthy little girl weighing in at 7lbs 7 oz. The only thing that made her birth out of the ordinary, Taylor was born with one hand. Around 6 weeks gestation, Taylor developed a blood clot in her arm which prohibited it from growing completely. Her left arm ends just below her elbow. Since her birth, she has been a patient of Shriners Hospitals for Children, where she receives prosthetics and participates in upper extremity clinics.

Shriners Hospitals for Children® is a health care system of 22 hospitals dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing specialty pediatric care, innovative research and outstanding teaching programs. Children up to age 18 with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate are eligible for admission and receive all care in a family-centered environment with no financial obligation to the patient or their families. Shriners Hospitals relies on the generosity of donors to deliver this mission every day.

Taylor received her first arm prosthesis at 3 months of age and instantly fell in love. She has always been able to do everything she wants or needs with just her available hand, but as most of us know, some tasks are easier with two. Taylor has always been a devout wearer and user of her prosthetics and will show any who see her that they are a useful tool and not an "unnecessary cosmetic" as some believe.
Taylor is currently excelling in first grade and rocking her 8th arm. She is always busy playing with her sister and friends and loves swimming, playing soccer, basketball, cheerleading and Tball.

We have been hosting the SHrINE ON Springfield walkathon annually since 2009, in honor of our daughter, to help support the Shriners Hospital mission of helping kids defy the odds. We also have a year round fundraiser called Tabs For Taylor, which is an aluminum can tab collection.

Tabs are collected by individuals, schools, hospitals and businesses all over NH, VT and beyond. They come by mail, car, freight train and even as carry-on baggage from other countries and one way or another, they make it to Taylor. The tab pile grows until she has an appointment at the Springfield Shriners Hospital, at which time they are transported to the hospital and Taylor says "Goodbye" to the tabs and the pile begins all over again. The tabs are recycled as scrap and the money made in the process is then used to purchase items needed by the hospitals and patients ranging from books and games to IV pumps and X-ray machines. Tabs money can also be used for personalized adaptive equipment, or added into the transportation fund which assists families with the financial challenges they sometimes face in getting their child to the hospital. This fund also helps families with lodging so they may be nearby while their child is in the hospital's care, as well as covering med flights when a child's life hangs in the balance.

Walk participants have raised almost $12,000 so far for the Springfield Shriners Hospitals and over 13 million can tabs have been collected in honor of Miss Taylor.

Tabs can be dropped off at Kit N Kaboodle Consignments, 16 Tremont St in Claremont, NH, as well as in our Tabs For Taylor wishing wells located at 71 Church St in North Walpole, NH , Brook Dr/ Route 63 in Hinsdale, NH and 33 School St in Alton, NH.

As stated above, the 7th SHrINE ON SPRINGFIELD walk for Shriners Hospitals for Children ~Springfield MA facility, will be held on Saturday June 13, 2015 on the Toonerville Trail ( trailhead at PCM Image-tech, 280 Clinton St Springfield, VT) Registration is at 9:30 and the walk starts at 10.

People can show their support in several different ways:

Make a donation yourself! You can sponsor a friend who is walking with us or donate with a credit card securely here. Cash or check donations will be accepted and collected at the walk before we hit the trail.

***Don't forget to bring your can tabs*****

Spread the word! Tell your friends and loved ones what we are doing and why its so important. Facebook, blogs, radios, tv stations, email, word of mouth, anything! The more, the merrier!
T-shirts and Thank You Goodies will be handed out to participants (while supplies last.) And remember: EVERY PENNY RAISED GOES DIRECTLY TO THE SPRINGFIELD SHRINERS HOSPITAL!!!!!!!!!
