I am excited to run the 2024 Marathon for Team Marisa's Mission. This will be my 4th Boston Marathon.
13 years ago I was diagnosed with Melanoma and just a few years ago had a reoccurrence. Luckily, for me, surgery, chemo and recovery has been relatively quick. I consider myself extremely lucky and want to do my part to help those in need.
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
