EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
My name is Jeff Merritt and I'm going to run the 118th Boston Marathon in 2014.
I rarely ask for help, but find myself in a position to humbly ask for yours.
I recently attended a Joe Andruzzi Foundation event and was moved to the point of tears, hearing from families struggling with cancer in their homes. The help that Joe and his team give to these families who are caring for their loved ones battling cancer is second to none. Whether they need heating fuel assistance, food assistance, or whatever the particular need of the family is, Joe is there to help.
After that night, remembering my personal experiences with family members and friends who battled cancer, and what they went through as well as their families, I decided that I would run the 118th Boston Marathon for a reason. I would run in memory of those who are battling or have battled cancer. I would run to try and make a small difference in somebody’s life. I would run for your family and friends who have been affected by this disease.
Let me run in memory of your loved ones that have had to deal with this horrific disease. Please share your stories with me, so that on every practice run, every hill we climb, every mile we run, and especially when we cross the finish line, we will be thinking of them, and they will be remembered.
Please donate to the Joe Andruzzi Foundation and help Joe help those that need our help the most.
Select the yellow donate button and give anything you can. I would greatly appreciate it and I know it would be put to very good use.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP
I knew I could count on you,
