BENEFITING: Joe Andruzzi Foundation
ORGANIZER: Joe Andruzzi Foundation
EVENT: Joe Andruzzi Boston 2015
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
My name is John Ponte and I’m honored to be running the 2015 Boston Marathon 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 who had prostate cancer. 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!
