Statement From The Gloucester Fishermen Athletic Association About Next Year’s Gloucester Triathlon

"The Gloucester Fishermen Athletic Association has decided not to host the annual Gloucester Fisherman Sprint Triathlon in 2012, as we’ve done since its creation in 2009. The triathlon takes a huge amount of time and resources to organize and run, so the GFAA plans instead to focus on other efforts that better support our fundraising goals. We are immensely grateful to all who participated in the Gloucester Tri and helped make it possible the last three years. The Gloucester Fishermen Athletic Association remains more committed than ever to helping all of Gloucester’s children participate in the sport of their choice, regardless of financial circumstances."

Donna Ardizzoni is the definition of Good Egg. The woman is everywhere!  She volunteers to help pick up before AND  after the Block Parties, she volunteers to help with the Gloucester Tri, she organizes the weekly One Hour at a Time Gang which picks a spot around the city and cleans it up and she also contributes photos for GMG!

Thanks Donna for all that you do.

Comments from Amy-

I love the pictures on your site. Glad whoever got the shot of me running at the finish took it when they did—that woman behind me was just about to blow by me!

Anyway, I was really, really impressed by the race today. I think the first time people/cities put on new events they go through some growing pains, but this event was very well run. The logistics were well thought out and it seemed very organized–to the participants at least. But what really made this race was the volunteers. There were tons of them and they not only gave direction and moved things along, but they were all cheering and it really helped people like me who were dying on certain parts of the course! I’m also impressed that they started and ended the race downtown. Now I need to get my act together so I don’t die in the swim next year. Maybe we should get you to do it too????
