Hook A Cure
- Community & Civic Organizations
When cancer took some of the people we loved most in this world, the PMC Bike Ride to benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute became our 2nd family. We found like-minded folks who had a passion to end the scourge of cancer in our lifetimes.
My husband Russell Morris was a passionate recreational fisherman. Above all he loved to get kids hooked on the joy of surfcasting. The NS coastline was his home away from home.
When cancer took him in 2013, I swore I'd raise a million dollars in his name, little did I know what this quiet promise would bring.
Since 2013, encompassing the PMC Riding Team, starting the Cape Ann Kids PMC, the Scrawney-Morgan Jimmy Fund Walk Team and now the Hook-A-Cure Fishing Tournament, we have raised over $138000.00 for cancer research!
What better way to honor Russell’s memory, by going fishing, having fun, meeting new friends, winning prizes; but most of all we’ll all help Dana-Farber’s mission to OBLIVIATE cancer from all of our lives once and for all!
