Brady TDs mean money for foundation

Posted 9/28/12

BOSTON – National Grid has pledged $700 to the Joe Andruzzi Foundation’s Patient Touchdown Program every time Tom Brady throws a regular season touchdown pass. It will also match public donations, dollar for dollar up to $75,000 for the foundation’s “Touchdowns by Tom” campaign.

As part of this partnership, National Grid also will host patient families at each New England home game through 98.5 The Sports Hub Patriots Radio Network and CBS Radio Boston.

The patient touchdown program assists patients and families fighting cancer with everyday household expenses. Andruzzi, a former Patriots player, recovered from non-Hodgkin’s Burkitt’s lymphoma four years ago. The Touchdowns by Tom campaign aims to help more than 100 families this fall.

“Joe and I joined the patriots around the same time and he spent many seasons protecting me as we earned three Super Bowl rings together,” Brady said in a statement. “Now I have the chance to help Joe protect patients and families from the stress of financial burdens during cancer treatment.”

Andruzzi and Brady will meet with National Grid representatives for a celebratory check presentation and announcement of total funds raised at the conclusion of the 2012 regular season.
