A long-time Community Ambassador of Family Reach, Karen Capuzzi organizes and participates in various Family Reach activities. Karen created Caring Feet in Motion, an event held at All Day Learning Centers in Hillsborough, NJ, which encourages children to help other children who are fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses through dance. Caring Feet in Motion events have raised over $5,000 for Family Reach families.
An avid athlete, Karen routinely participates in cross-training events with Family Reach as her beneficiary. Recently, she walked 40 miles to celebrate her 40th birthday and asked her family and friends to show their support by making a gift to Family Reach. Karen explained, “Whatever family and friends decided to donate increased my motivation of living up to my promise for Family Reach, in honor of all of the families they touch with their warmth and support.” Karen has also co-created the Reach Runner program, just one of the foundation’s Endurance Events that encourages runners throughout the country to perform their favorite sports while raising money for Family Reach families.
Karen is a busy mother of 4 and resides in Somerset, NJ.
