2012 Reid’s Ride Photos From Tina Ketchopolos

Joey:  Here are some photos from Reid’s Ride in memory of Reid Sacco that took place yesterday from Lynnfield ending at Stage Fort Park in Gloucester.

Reid’s parents Gene and Lorraine Sacco of Lynnfield began this event in memory of their son Reid R. Sacco.  They are an incredible parents with lots of support from wonderful family members and friends.

The ride is a 28-mile Bike-a-thon , a fun and rewarding way to support clinical and scientific research into finding more  treatments — and someday a cure — for the cancers that predominantly strike adolescents and young adults. Cyclists of all ages and abilities pedal their way from Lynnfield to Cape Ann in what is the primary fund-raising event for the Reid Sacco Memorial Foundation.  The event registration fees, sponsorships and donations benefit the Reid Sacco Memorial Cancer Research Fund, and this fund supports clinical and research programs in the area of young adult cancers. The Foundation’s mission is to improve the outlook for this population of cancer patients, a population that has been tragically underserved by recent advances in cancer treatment.

Sacco was born July 24, 1984, which is intentionally close to the ride date. Sacco’s goal was to ride in a bike-a-thon to prevent young adult cancer, but cancer took his life before he achieved that desire. He died June 16, 2005 at the age of 20.   Reid was enrolled at Columbia University to study Chemical Engineering

In late June 2012, the Reid R. Sacco AYA Program at Tufts Medical Center was announced – the program includes the establishment this summer of the Reid R. Sacco Adolescent & Young Adults Clinic for Cancer and Blood Diseases, as well as the establishment of the Reid R. Sacco AYA Fund to support educational initiatives at Tufts.   This extraordinary achievement was made possible by your participation in Reid’s Ride over the years.

This year’s Reid Rice raised over $100,000. with donations still coming in!

ArtRocks! Paul Frontiero with some Adoring Fans

“Melen” (Mary Helen) Landergren found one of Paul’s ArtRocks by Good Harbor Beach in September.  For Christmas, she gave it to Nancy Silva, her best friend of 38 years, who had long wanted an ArtRock.  MH is also married to Don called D, Nancy’s brother, and their son was one of the unsuccessful videotaped searchers looking for the rock hidden at Capt. Joe & Sons that Patti Keenan’s husband found (if you remember that incredibly funny video, featuring some historic Ed Collard footage).  It has been a family mission to find an ArtRock.  They came to Mug Up Sunday so they could meet the famous Paul Frontiero, Jr. and thank him in person.  I love stories with happy endings, don’t you!

What’s Cookin on Amazon

 What’s Cookin, 185 Washington Street  Brian Rice is a great cook, and an all around great guy.

They say, “If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen” — and that’s fine because you don’t want to spend all day baking during a 90-degree heatwave anyway. Savor outstanding grub without all the roasting when you grab today’s deal from What’s Cookin’?: $15 for $30 to spend on prepared meals, sandwiches, soups, and more.

Opened in 2011, this Gloucester eatery has proven to be a cut above the rest by specializing in creative dishes made from locally sourced North Shore produce and seafood. Enjoy a new twist on classic dishes like a chicken salad sandwich with cranberries, scallions, and toasted almonds, or a portabella panini on crusty ciabatta. Whether you want to pick up a fresh-made lunch or a prepared entrée to take home for dinner (we love the pulled pork with homemade barbecue sauce), you’d better grab this sizzling deal while it’s still hot.
