ALEX AND ANI
Thanks to an incredible partnership with ALEX AND ANI | CHARITY BY DESIGN, patients, family members, supporters and friends of the Joe Andruzzi Foundation from around the globe can wear a “Live A Happy Life” Charm bangle on their arm as a reminder of our (Up)Beat philosophy and a source of inspiration every day.
Twenty-percent of the sale price from every bangle directly supports JAF’s mission of providing help, hope, and a reason to smile for cancer patients and their families by contributing financial and emotional support when it is needed most.
The Meaning Card that accompanies each bracelet perfectly encapsulates our mission. It states, “The path to living a happy life is inherently paved with hopefulness, and the journey offers no shortcuts. Hope cannot be fabricated or counterfeited – it is manifested in only those who first believe in its existence. You can find hope and you can give hope; we must always remember: as long as hope exists, the road to a happy life awaits.”

“Partnering with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation was a natural for us given our shared philosophy of approaching life – in spite of its challenges – with a positive attitude. When we learned about Joe Andruzzi’s story – how he battled and overcame an aggressive form of cancer all while maintaining a sense of humor and a positive outlook, and how he has since co-founded the Joe Andruzzi Foundation to help others battling cancer – we knew we shared a core guiding principle of applying the power of positive energy to make a difference.”
– Carolyn Rafaelian, Founder and CEO of ALEX AND ANI
For years, our friends at New Balance have generously designed and provided our Team JAF athletes with running apparel for the Boston Marathon and Falmouth Road Races. We thank them for their benevolence and commitment to the mission our Team JAF runners represent!
The Joe Andruzzi Foundation is proud to partner with NRG LAB, a fitness center located in Mansfield Crossing in Mansfield, MA, on a number of initiatives this – including the gym becoming the Official Fitness Club of the JAF Employee Wellness Program. Additionally, local JAF cancer patient financial grant recipients will receive a free 90-day NRG LAB membership, and the fitness center has also become the proud partner of Team JAF athletes – offering membership opportunities and hosting quarterly JAF fundraisers for those raising money for the Foundation through events like the Boston Marathon® and the New Balance Falmouth Road Race®.
The center offers fantastic programs, a wonderful approach and an overall great wellness community our foundation is thrilled to be involved in. JAF looks forward to developing our relationship, and partnering on future events, in the months to come.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation and assist in driving awareness to the organization’s mission. We are committed to providing a healthy lifestyle to our members and the community we serve.”
