Marathon for Massasoit
April 25 from 8:00 am–5:00 pm
Joe Harris and Alex Cotter, members of the Massasoit faculty and staff, are running a Marathon for Massasoit to raise funds in support of the college’s Respiratory Care program.
Funds raised from this event will provide support for respiratory care lab equipment and supplies, student scholarships, mentoring, recruitment, and professional development. You can choose to sponsor Joe and Alex on a “per mile” basis for their targeted 60 miles combined or at a set dollar amount in partnership with their efforts.
We hope that you join in Joe and Alex’s commitment to assist Massasoit students and would be willing to sponsor their efforts! Follow the link to donate.
Why support Massasoit’s Respiratory Care program?
Respiratory Care is an allied health profession dedicated to the management and care of patients having difficulties and abnormalities associated with breathing. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the need for well-trained respiratory therapists, and as Boston 25 News reported, Massasoit students and faculty are on the frontlines of the crisis. Our students are trained to operate ventilators and work under the direction of physicians to improve the cardiopulmonary health of infants, children and adults.
Our Associate in Science in Respiratory Care can be completed in two years and is accredited by the Commission of Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC). Massasoit students complete carefully selected clinical experiences in area hospitals and health agencies, and our well-respected program helps students secure employment while they are finishing their degree or shortly after graduation.
Follow Joe and Alex’s Journey
Joe and Alex will be running two different, but very difficult terrains on Saturday, April 25 and will be updating us with their progress. We will share their progress on Massasoit’s social media pages so that you can support them virtually.
Massasoit Community College encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation or have questions related to access for this event, please contact Paul D. Grand Pré in advance of your participation or visit.
