BENEFITING: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I’m honored to be running the Boston Marathon once again for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation’s (JAF) UpBeatCancer team and the many families we support. Founded by former New England Patriots player Joe Andruzzi and his wife Jen, JAF is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial and emotional assistance to cancer patients and their families as well as funding for pediatric brain cancer research.
Unfortunately, everyone has been affected at one time or another by cancer. I, myself, have had several friends and family members who have battled the disease including my dad. Guided by JAF, it’s my mission to help the organization provide the help, hope and a reason to smile for those cancer patients and their families. The funds we raise will go towards helping these families who face financial hardship while undergoing cancer treatments (expenses such as mortgage payments, utility bills, gas, groceries, etc.) – allowing them to focus on treatment and recovery.
Please consider supporting my campaign and the many families we help across New England, New York and New Jersey. REMEMBER: NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL!
