BENEFITING: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
From the first time I ran with Team JAF in 2013 to running in the marathon again in 2017 the Joe Andruzzi Foundation has had a huge impact on my life and on countless others.
I was honored when I was chosen to run in 2013 as part of the team - the support, camaraderie and the mission are what fueled me during those long training runs. After being stopped at mile 25.5 I knew my marathon and involvement with JAF couldn't, and wouldn't, end there.
I returned in 2014 to finish what I started, and got to finish the race with a little added pep in my step after getting engaged at the 18th mile. Running past the JAF Marathon Party, showing off my new bling, was a perfect way to get my first official Boston marathon medal.
Now, one wedding, one baby and 2 years later I am back to once again lace up my shoes in support of an amazing organization that provides help, hope, and a reason to smile for cancer patients and their families by contributing financial and emotional support when it’s needed most .... and I hope you'll join me in supporting them!
