BENEFITING: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2015
On March 20th, 2016, I will be joining 7 other members of "Team JAF" in running (and hopefully completing!) the New York City Half Marathon in downtown Manhattan. We are doing this to raise money for a very worthy cause, the Joe Andruzzi Foundation. Founded by former New England Patriot offensive lineman Joe Andruzzi (who is himself a cancer survivor) and his wife Jen, JAF provides financial and emotional support to cancer patients and their families at a time when they need it most.
My wife Sue and I have been supporters of JAF for the past 5 years, and we have seen the foundations work up close with two friends in our community who received support from the foundation in their fights with cancer. Unlike many of the other very worthy cancer fighting charities out there, JAF is unique in that they provide immediate direct financial support (help with utility bills, groceries, rent/mortgage payments, etc) to cancer patients and their families who are unable to work because they are either receiving treatment or caring for a loved one who is undergoing treatment.
I would like to ask you to consider making a donation of any size to this worthy cause. In doing so, you will be making a direct, positive impact in the lives of cancer patients and their families as they fight back against this devastating disease. To donate, please click on the big blue "DONATE" button on right side of this screen. I have set a personal goal of raising $4,000, and our teams goal is $15,000. For each donation that I receive up to $2,000, my company, M D England and Sons, will do a dollar-for-dollar match, so every dollar you donate will be doubled!
Thanks very much for your help, and God bless!
