Health Beat: Newburyport baby wins photo contest

Anna Jaques Hospital and Women’s Health Care have selected a Newburyport newborn’s photo to appear in advertisements that start running today.

The picture of Austin Marroncelli, just 1 week old when it was taken, was selected from more than 60 entries submitted to the contest through the Anna Jaques Facebook page. The photos all featured babies born at Anna Jaques and delivered by a Women’s Health Care provider within the past five years.

The winning photo was selected by a panel of judges composed of Women’s Health Care and Birth Center staff and one of the hospital’s corporators.

Austin is the son of David and Kristen Marroncelli, who also received a $150 Visa gift card.

Join local team riding for a cure

The second annual Pan-Merrimack Challenge will roll away from Michael’s Harborside on Saturday, June 15. Registration starts at 8 a.m.

Riders pay a $50 fee, raise at least $50 in pledges and ride a 25- or 50-mile scenic route through neighboring communities. A post-ride celebration will take place back at Michael’s Harborside with live music from Todo Bien, lunch and a raffle.

All riders will receive T-shirts, water bottles and gift bags.

All proceeds from the bike-a-thon will benefit the Riverside Rockets’ Pan-Mass Challenge team. The Pan-Mass Challenge, set for Aug. 3 and 4, raises money for cancer treatment and research through the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and The Jimmy Fund.

The Riverside Rockets, a team of 23 members from Amesbury and Newburyport, are riding this year’s Pan-Mass Challenge in honor of Wesley Barrett, a 2-year-old boy being treated for clear cell sarcoma of the kidney.

To register for the Pan-Merrimack Challenge or for more information, visit www.bikereg.com/Net/18917.
