Less than one week to go! Last week Johanna asked me how I think I'll feel when I finish the marathon. It is something that goes through my mind so often; I try to envision it when I’ve been training. What I do know is that I will feel incredibly proud to be part of such a great organization, and knowing by doing something I enjoy, with the support of my friends and family, I am able to help numerous families.
The outpouring of support I have received is amazing and I am very humbled by your generosity. I love the encouraging notes I've gotten, the tributes you have made with your donations-all of this I will keep with me as I run 26.2 miles. This and knowing that for every $700 I raise another family can receive assistance. It’s a great feeling knowing that together we are making a difference in someone's life.
I still have time and I'd love to raise even more money and help assist even more families. Helping alleviate a financial burden on someone going through cancer treatments-so they can focus on getting well- is pretty awesome and by donating you are helping me do this!
Thank you to those who have already donated to my Crowdrise page for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation Boston Marathon Team-and to those considering it, I really appreciate your help. We are the light and hope for so many families. Thank you- I could not do this without you!!
