BENEFITING: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
In just a few months I will return to Boston to run my second Boston Marathon, this time as a member of Team JAF! Founded by former New England Patriots offensive guard Joe Andruzzi and his wife Jen in 2008, the Joe Andruzzi Foundation grew out of Joe's successful battle with cancer and the couple's ongoing work with young cancer patients.
The Joe Andruzzi foundation provides financial assistance to cancer patients and their families, helping them focus on recovery, not bills. The foundation also funds research at Boston Children's hospital, building on the Andruzzi's longstanding commitment to cutting edge pediatric brain cancer research.
Cancer has touched all of our lives; some much harder than others. I'm running the 2017 Boston Marathon in memory of my mother who died of cancer in June, 2001. I'm humbled that I was chosen to be on this amazing team and now I'm responsible for doing my part! I will train harder and more dilligently than I've ever trained before, and I will exceed my goal of raising $10,000.00 for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation!
To accomplish this, I need your help! Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Joe Andruzzi Foundation. In addition to running in memory of my mother, it would also be an honor for me to run on behalf of or in memory of someone in your life! I appreciate your support from the bottom of my heart.
