BENEFITING: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
I am honored to have been chosen to be a part of the Joe Andruzzi Foundation Marathon Team. On April 21st I will be running in my first Boston Marathon. Crossing the finish line will be a huge accomplishment but my true goal is to raise $12,000 for this incredible foundation to help families in need. Like most of us, I have seen too many friends and family members fight cancer and all of the challenges that come along with it. I was inspired to do this by our close friend Christy who is bravely fighting cancer for the second time and all along has never lost her positive attitude. She's an amazing person and is everything the JAF stands for. And by little Marty Wells, my cousin who at two years old was diagnosed with cancer. He's the reason I had heard of the Joe Andruzzi Foundation and has himself inspired an entire community. Thank you all for helping me hit my goal! Every contribution, no matter the amount, is greatly appreciated!

The JAF Marathon Team is fundraising to help cancer patients pay pressing bills and to raise funds for pediatric brain cancer research. Our mission is to (Up)Beat Cancer! What is (Up)Beat Cancer?
It’s everything we stand for. It’s our philosophy. And our rallying cry. Upbeat is how Joe approached cancer, and he battled through it. Now we’re committed to helping others. Together, with a positive attitude and a sense of humor, we’ll fight to not only beat cancer, but upbeat it.
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.
