Gabe’s Run 2014: The Seventh Annual Reunion Run to Benefit the Gabriel Pacione Memorial Scholarships
A big, bold, colorful race among friends. Over 1000 of them in fact. From all over the North Shore, the state and New England. We colored the day with a bit of Gabe’s vibrant personality and created a competitive event where everyone is welcome. Each year the field gets a little bigger, teams and individuals run a little faster and smiles stretch a little wider.
The annual reunion race is a great opportunity to catch up with friends both old and new. Sign up the club team, grab your neighborhood friends, call the “guys” from school or carefully craft your dream team from all of your old competitors – however and whoever – it’s a great day out. Maybe you are just keen to get into the action, there are over 1000 reasons to cheer and that’s not even counting a warm cup of Woodman’s chowder that’s guaranteed to melt November’s chill.
The friends and family of Gabe Pacione have created this race as a way to celebrate his positive spirit and share his passion for running and relationships with the communities he loved. Gabe’s Fund is our way of transforming the hope and promise we held for Gabe by helping other student athletes’ reach for their dreams.
