THE STORY:

Hello friends and family!

 I am running the Boston marathon on behalf of the Joe Andruzzi Foundation, which provides financial assistance for cancer patients and their families and also helps fund pediatric brain cancer research.

 If you know me well, you know that I've been looking for a way to give back and to support cancer research, ever since my good friend Kristin Porter passed away from thymic carcinoma, just 10 months ago.  Kristin and I lived parallel lives: we both lived in Boston in our 20s, got married a few months apart, and both worked in marketing for the financial services industry. Her children Elise and Gartner are even the same ages as Sarah and Brendan. Kristin was one of those people that gave so much to so many and inspired others to want to do the same.

This past year, I thought hard about joining one of the many charity marathon teams that raises money for cancer, and shyed away because of their steep fundraising requirements. Instead, I settled for running the Providence marathon in early May which didn't require any fundraising. All along, I questioned my decision, especially as I watched my girlfriends come up with creative and fun ways to raise money for the charities they're supporting.

Just yesterday, I was thrilled to be presented with the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon on behalf of the Joe Andruzzi Foundation. Because the marathon is only 9 days away, the required fundraising limit was reduced and felt less overwhelming. But I do want to do what I can to help raise money in support of cancer.

Please consider a donation on my behalf, to help patients and their families as they are burdened with cancer.

XOXO,

Nora
