THE STORY:

When I took my first steps in the 2013 Boston Marathon I was thrilled to be finishing something I had worked so hard for 2 years to achieve.  After an injury prevented me from running in 2012, Boston 2013 was going to be “the year.”  Sadly, we all know what happened on April 15, 2013; we know the tragedy that struck this city and its people. But, we also know the many stories of the heroes on this day . . . the first responders, the Marathon volunteers, the runners who ran to hospitals to give blood, strangers offering lodging and warm clothes to runners who were stranded.  From these heroic acts came a new mantra for our city, “Boston Strong.” 

During my training in 2012 and 2013, I was introduced to the Joe Andruzzi Foundation by a friend that joined their marathon team. I attended some of the charity events, and participated in some charity training runs – the Superhero run being one of my favorites – what woman doesn’t want to rock a Wonder Woman costume during a 17+ mile training run!!!???  I’ve learned about Joe’s own personal battle with cancer, and about how he approached this disease – “Upbeat,” and he battled through it. I’ve witnessed his passion to positively impact the lives of cancer patients and their families. 

Now, as part of an awesome group of charity runners, I have the privilege of spreading the word about JAF and the amazing work they do.  To quote their philosophy: “Together, with a positive attitude and a sense of humor, we’ll fight to not only beat cancer, but upbeat it.” I love that this is what they stand for and am thrilled to be raising funds for such a worthy organization.  During the 2013 Boston Marathon, I was stopped at 25.5 mile mark.  So I’m back and I’m ready!! Third time’s the charm right?!?!  What’s better is that I’m raising money and providing help, hope, and a reason to smile for cancer patients and their families with financial and emotional support when it is needed most.
