THE SIXTH ANNUAL HELP HOOK THE CURE DERBY
AUGUST 28TH, 2010
The 6th Annual Help Hook the Cure Derby will have boats from all over Massachusetts on the waters of Boston Harbor between 5AM and 3 PM on August 28, 2010. Nick Frasso, along with the Winthrop Lodge of Elks, will lead the charity event benefiting the Michael J. Fox Foundation. A BBQ featuring a DJ and raffle prizes will begin at 3 PM to announce the winners.“Everyone always has a great time and a lot of laughs at the derby,” says Nick Frasso, “I named my boat the Shake N’ Bait because a little humor helps me stay positive.”
The derby, organized by Frasso, was highlighted in the summer 2006 issue of Parkinson Report
and has raised $65,000 to date. The catcher of the largest striped bass will go home with $1000 while the person with the second largest will receive $250. Kids will receive a trophy for their participation. Head to Boston Harbor on August 28, 2010 and help hook the cure.
Diagnosed with Parkinson Disease in April 2000, Nick Frasso spends his days fishing, hunting, and most importantly, helping to find a cure for the illness that he and many others live with. At the age of 48 he was forced into retirement, leaving his long-lived career in the restaurant business behind. Without work, he made his hobby of fishing into a full-time job and organized the 1st
Annual Help Hook the Cure Fishing Derby which took place on August 20th 2005 at the Winthrop Lodge of Elks. The derby had fisherman from all along the east coast competing to hook the largest striped bass in Boston Harbor. Due to the outstanding success of the first five derbies (donating over $65,000 to Parkinson's Research), Nick is proud to bring the competition back to Boston Harbor for a sixth year.
