ON A RUN TO END CYSTIC FIBROSIS: Chelsea Rep John Pirozzi Joins the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon to Raise Money for the Boomer Esiason Foundation

STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK, OCTOBER 15, 2019 — Chelsea Financial Services (Chelsea) Representative John Pirozzi will participate in the TCS New York City Marathon on November 3, 2019 to benefit the Boomer Esiason Foundation and Cystic Fibrosis Research.

Chelsea Company President, John Pisapia remarked: “John Pirozzi has been a longtime Representative (since 2009) and a longtime Resident of Staten Island (since 1993) who has always been deeply involved in his community. I’m proud to support his incredible fundraising efforts to help end Cystic Fibrosis.”

Pirozzi is no stranger to running but this will mark his first marathon. He has run the Brooklyn Half Marathon twice plus quite a few 5K runs, fundraising all the while. “My family is also a huge motivator for my fitness and fundraising goals…My wife of 27 years, Maria, plus my daughters Amanda and Brianna with my two Grandchildren keep me busy, not only running, but running around!” laughed Pirozzi.

Pirozzi Adds: “Running is a big part of my daily routine. Even when I’m not running around my neighborhood in Prince’s Bay, running is incorporated into my training at my gym, Outerbridge Crossfit, where my coach John has been preparing me to make sure that I finish the race…Plus, I’m running for a great cause, so that makes it all that more rewarding and motivating!”

Please join Chelsea Financial Services in supporting John and the Boomer Esiason Foundation in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis via his CrowdRise Fundraising Page.
