The Whole Gang Was Here for The Hole in The Wall Gang
Led and inspired by Traci Mercier, PA-C, provider at Harrington’s UrgentCare Express and her son, Nicholas, a cancer survivor, a 12-member team known as “Older Kids for Younger Kids” ran the Ragnar Cape Cod – a 200-mile overnight race from Hull to Provincetown May 12-13. The team raised funds for Ashford, Conn.’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, established by late Paul Newman for children with serious illness and their families to benefit from “a different kind of healing”.
Included in the team were six of Harrington HealthCare’s providers from the Emergency Department and Urgent Care Centers. The team raised $7,699 dollars for the completely free of charge services for these children and their families: 25,000 of these children live in New England alone.

Six other teammates from surrounding healthcare systems rounded out the team, and were no less important and motivated: Harry Arters, Sovann Yong, Kristen Laferriere, Russ Smith, Lis Swain and Liz Clare.
