BENEFITING: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
I am honored, excited and humbled to be part of Team JAF this year, to be affiliated with an organization such as the Joe Andruzzi Foundation and be part of the 118th running of the Boston Marathon. Two people that inspire me the most in life have both run the Boston Marathon – my father Henry Hobaica (who tackled cancer years ago) and my brother David Hobaica who has been involved with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation for years. I want to follow in their footsteps both in running this marathon and also helping support this incredible organization. My husband and I have both experienced family members going through cancer treatments. We know how it can turn your world upside down – emotionally, financially, physically. This is where the Joe Andruzzi Foundation steps in and helps smooth the road by providing financial and emotional assistance to the broad community of cancer patients. Whether it be paying mortgage payments, helping with utility bills, providing grocery gift cards or walking the halls of Children’s Hospital in Boston, Joe Andruzzi and his foundation make an exceedingly difficult time a bit easier.
We are asking our friends, family and school community in Texas, Florida, New York and throughout New England to help James and I raise funds for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation. If you sponsor our running team, it will put money into the Foundation and they can continue to help families during times of cancer treatments. Be part of giving grocery cards, paying a mortgage bill or helping pay a utility bill.
If you pledge $100 or more, I will write the name of a person on my race shirt that you would like me to run for or in memory of. Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and for supporting us!
Ann-Margaret, James, Henry and Will
