Get to Know Sandy
What drives you each day at the Joe Andruzzi Foundation?
Knowing that the money we raise directly supports people within our community and truly makes a significant impact in their lives.
What is your favorite thing about working for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation?
Seeing former cancer patients we have funded come back to us and ask what they can do to support the Foundation – like running for Team JAF, hosting a fundraiser, or volunteering in the office. It’s the full-circle, ‘pay-it-forward’ aspect of what we do that I love the most.
What’s a “fun fact” about yourself that others may be surprised to learn?
Music (the original “JT”) can completely transform my mood, as can a good 10-15-mile bike ride on any given day!
