BENEFITING: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
I am excited, honored, & proud to have been chosen to run for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation. It is such an amazing organization and I am thrilled to be a part of it. I ran the marathon years ago so I know what an amazing experience it is however this year is different. I am really looking forward to raising as much money as I possibly can to help people affected by this awful disease that has hit many of us all too closely.
My motivation for really wanting to run for this cause is because I personally have been effected by cancer multiple times having known friends & family members battling the disease. Most importantly, I lost my Dad to it a few years ago. I know exactly how difficult it is as well as the struggles families face when dealing with the ups and downs of this illness. I had not heard of the JAF foundation until I had been at a Patriots tailgate in which Joe was there as well. I had the opportunity to speak with him and hear about what the organization is all about. I knew right away I wanted to run this year for this cause. I was immediately touched by what the JAF organization does for people and couldn't be happier having the opportunity to contribute myself. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated and no donation is too small. Thank you!
