324

The 2nd Annual Anna’s Monster Dash took place Sunday Oct 16 2022 at the Salesians boys and girls club and it was a great success.

Organizers had well over 200 supporters, racers, and volunteers on race day. It was a beautiful day full of fun with many laughs, hugs and tears as friends of Anna continue to honor and keep her memory alive. “Anna’s family is humbled by the continued love and support from our community and those close and far,” said Antonietta Coviello O’Toole, her sister.

The Anna Coviello Noviello Memorial Scholarship Foundation was founded to assist students with their Catholic education. Anna Coviello Noviello, was a beautiful and faithful person whose smile and laughter radiated her appreciation for life.

This was true even after she had been diagnosed with cancer and given a few short years to live. Through it all, what remained clear was Anna’s devotion to God and her trust in His plan. Anna fought hard and remained devoted to her Catholic faith until she was called Home.

In fact, it was Anna’s Catholic faith that aided her in living a full life. During the last days of her life on this earth, Anna, a 40-year-old mother, wife, daughter and sister, told her family that she had a “good life” and that “Heaven was beautiful.”

“The Coviello And Noviello Families Thank everyone that was a part of this special day and for helping us keep Anna’s memory alive.. till next year.. ‘when life gives you lemons make lemonade’,” added Antonietta Coviello O’Toole
