Thanks for visiting my fundraising page! Running the Boston Marathon has always been a bucket list item of mine. Going to school in Boston, I would take the short walk down to the finish line every third Monday in April and cheer on all the runners. I always imagined what an awesome feeling that must be.
What happened at last year's marathon upset me quite a bit. Marathon Monday is such a great day to be in Boston and I was furious that someone would try to take that away. The next day I signed up for my first half marathon (which I completed in August) and started researching what it takes to get into the Boston Marathon. A few months later, I'm fortunate enough to be part of the Joe Andruzzi Foundation team and training to run my first marathon. Most of all, I get to be part of Boston getting back on its feet.
I have yet to meet anyone in my life that hasn't been touched in some way or another by cancer. The Joe Andruzzi Foundation is committed to providing help, hope, and a reason to smile for cancer patients and their families by contributing financial and emotional support when it is needed most.
Thanks for your help!
