BENEFITING: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
I'm back at it again! As many of you know, the 2013 Boston Marathon was to be my 50th marathon in my 50th state....and well, it didn't go as planned. But that minor setback won't stop me. I'll be attempting to finish the states (officially) in Boston in 2014.
Three weeks after Boston, I promptly registered and ran another Massachusetts marathon...all the way to the finish line. Realizing I was not doing the run for me, I did not cross the line. I vowed to go back to Boston and do it the way I had dreamed about every day for at least a year....so here we go!
In this process, I have had the opportunity to meet and get to know Joe and Jen Andruzzi. These are two of the kindest people you could ever meet. What their Foundation does for patients and their families is truly amazing; just read a few of the stories on their website. I couldn't be more proud to run for their Foundation again this year! I believe in the work they do because no one fighting for their life should be worried about feeding their family or keeping a roof over their head. The Andruzzi’s have taught me that leading a charitable life is rewarding and that I can do without a luxury to give to others that are less fortunate than myself. Having watched my Uncle battle cancer (and lose), I can think of no better cause to support. Your donation is not only important to me, but the Foundation as well. Please know that no donation is too small and will be greatly appreciated.
