Patricia Garibaldi


I am running for my dear friend and neighbor Mark whose life was taken by melanoma in December.  He was a truly magnetic person and a friend to all who he encountered.  His presence made any room he entered brighter and I am a better person for knowing him and his amazing family.  I am running to help the Melanoma Foundation of New England's efforts to fight and prevent this disease that has taken so many special people from us.  I am also running for the last .4.  Last year I ran the Boston Marathon and was stopped at mile 25.8 because of the horrific events ocurring at the finish line.  That day will stay with me forever and I hope to be able to finally cross the finish line that has been haunting me since last April not only for myself, but also for those who were most poignantly affected that day and for Mark.  

I am thrilled to be embarking upon my marathon journey as a member of the Melanoma Foundation of New England.  Thanks so much for your support!

Some words from the Melanoma Foundation of New England-

While we are forever changed by the events that took place on April 15, 2013 and the days that followed, we will not let this define our experience. Before the tragedies on Marathon Monday, Team Running for Cover was already a remarkable group of individuals who came together to take on the challenge of the marathon and raise money for a cause they are passionate about.  They are now forever bonded, pulling together as teammates – and now friends – they supported each other and never waivered in their dedication to the team’s mission. 

The Melanoma Foundation of New England's mission is to reduce the incidents of melanoma in the New England region through education, prevention and support. MFNE hosts a range of educational programs to spread awareness. These programs include Your Skin Is In, a program teaching high school and college students the dangers of tanning, and The Skinny on Skin, which teaches beauty professionals to recognize potential melanomas on the head, neck and scalp of their clients.

Team Running for Cover is running the 2014 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support MFNE's mission. All funds raised will be used to fund and expand these educational programs throughout the New England Area.
