Inaugural Bluefin Blowout Family 5K

Nice turnout. Check.

Exercise and Family Fun. Check.

Money raised.  Check.

Increased awareness for Alzheimers. Check.

#endalz.  Trying like hell.

The first ever Bluefin Blowout Family Fun Run and 5K took place at Gloucester’s Stagefort Park yesterday morning.  Runners and walkers rallied by the gazebo before starting out to complete the roundtrip course to Hammond Castle and back to the park. A beautiful course at that.

Adding to the excitement of the day, Becca Pizzi gave the word to kick off the run/walk as the honorary official. Becca Pizzi is a good friend to the Lyon-Waugh Auto Group and has also accomplished the unbelievable feat of running 7 marathons, on 7 continents, in 7 days for the World Marathon Challenge….twice.  Amazing!

If anyone needed a reason to put some pep in their step, the news that the event had already raised close to $60,000 certainly helped! Rockstars!

With yesterday’s successful event in the books, we are all one step closer to enjoying what many people have come to call THE weekend of the summer, the Bluefin Blowout 2018.  This year’s tournament marks year #7 and the goal is to make it the biggest and best yet.  That’s no easy goal considering the success of year’s past, but if anyone can do it it is Lyon-Waugh Auto Group and the tremendous sponsors that add to the tournament’s success each year….not to mention the captains and crews.

With that in mind, mark your calendars NOW for August 2nd-4th and plan on spending some serious time at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort

We hope to raise some big bluefin at weigh-in, raise lots of hands for bidding, raise awareness for #endalz, and raise a huge amount of money for the Alzheimer’s Association …. and maybe raise the roof with DJ Scottie Mac and other live entertainment.  Please join us!
