Hook A Cure Fishing Tournament
August 17 @ 6:30 am - 8:30 pm
Bikes, Boats, Bait, and HOPE! Let me tell you how we got Bikes and Boats together!
When cancer took my husband Russell…I was lost. He was my best friend, my business partner….heck, he was my everything. I searched for some way to help end this scourge. That is when I remembered the Pan Mass Challenge…
Each year during the first weekend of August, the Pan-Mass Challenge brings together thousands of impassioned (and crazy) cyclists, committed volunteers, generous donors and dedicated corporate sponsors with one mission. Together, this impassioned collection strives to provide Dana-Farber‘s doctors and researchers with the necessary resources to discover cures for all types of cancer.
It was their unrelenting quest to fund Dana-Farber’s research that struck a cord with me –
In what seemed like the blink of an eye, our family and friends formed a Team (scrawney-morgan.org) and jumped on our bikes to help. and though this challenging mission was fulfilling and successful, I felt something was still missing…
Russell loved fishing for stripers more than most anything – he loved helping kids and families grab a Rod and discover the joy of fishing. Though our merry band of warriors has raised over $100,000 riding bikes, walking for Jimmy, and creating a Kids PMC on Cape Ann, it wasn’t until this year that the most important cog in our proverbial fundraising wheel came to fruition…The Hook-A- Cure Fishing Tournament.
What better way to honor his memory – have fun, win prizes and help the Pan Mass Challenge fulfill its commitment to Dana-Farber’s mission!?!
SO, come join us, cast your line into the wind and help us hook a cure together! – – – Pat Morris
