I am honored to be running the 2020 Boston Marathon with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF), raising awareness for how cancer impacts both patients and their families lives. The funds I will be raising will be used to help cancer patients and their families throughout New England who are battling this terrible disease. I lost my father to cancer three years ago, so I know first-hand the stresses placed on a family when they are faced with caring for a loved one. JAF provides financial support where its needed, and I'm proud to support this mission.
A little bit about myself- originally from VT but have lived in the Boston area for 20 years now. My wife and three daughters are fully supportive of my desire to run Boston in 2020. My first (and only!) marathon experience in 2004 didn't go very well as injuries had me sidelined for much of my training - I'm hoping 2020 will be a much better experience!
Thank you all for your support!
The Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) was established to serve cancer patients of all ages throughout New England who experience the hidden costs of cancer as a result of a diagnosis. Cancer-related income loss or reduction combined with rising treatment costs often leads to financial stress as families struggle to cover their everyday expenses. JAF understands that crucial living expenses are not put on hold because of a diagnosis, and our Financial Assistance Program helps alleviate financial stress through the distribution of grants and gift cards to assist with rent/mortgage payments, utilities, food, and other household expenses.
