I have been a friend to the Federico family since I was in middle school. I had the privilege of going to High School and College with Marisa. I feel honored to be running the Boston Marathon for this incredible organization.
I lost both of my parents to cancer in 2006 so raising money for this type of charity is near and dear to my heart. I was never an athlete growing up and was always the “I Can’t” girl and ever since losing my parents I have been determined to say “I CAN” for all those people who can not! This is my FIRST Boston Marathon and I’m so excited to have this opportunity because it’s been at the top of my bucket list! PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING MY FUNDRAISING EFFORTS!!
Team Marisa’s Mission is proud to be apart of the 128 th Boston Marathon! We have 10 runners committed to crossing the finish line and raising funds to help patients and families dealing with the devastating diagnosis of cancer.
At Marisa’s Mission, our goal is to keep the spirit of our namesake, Marisa Federico, alive by alleviating the financial burdens caused by cancer to patients and families through out Massachusetts. We provide hope, support, and the means to focus on what matters most: their health and well being as a family. Marisa’s Mission grants upwards of $10,000 per patient/family through four major programs: Home Assistance, Care, Travel/Lodging and Special Trips. We understand the turmoil caused by this disease and how it not only impacts the individual, but also extends its reach to the entire family. Since 2017, we have been fortunate enough to grant over 1 Million dollars worth of support to patients, families, and hospitals across Massachusetts. Your support not only facilitates our mission, but also amplifies the positive impact we can make! Learn more about Marisa and Marisa’s Mission at www.Marisas-Mission.org
