I am running with Marisa’s Mission because the cause is very personal to me. Cancer has impacted the lives of all our loved ones, including my own family. Marisa was a cousin of my late wonderful father-in-law, whom I was never fortunate to meet as he lost his own personal battle with the disease, just before my wife Cal's 11th birthday. Seeing the impact cancer has had on my family motivates me to do everything I can to ease someone's journey as they fight this disease.
Team Marisa’s Mission is proud to be apart of the 128th 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! Learn more about Marisa and Marisa’s Mission at www.Marisas-Mission.org
