Newburyport News in Brief

(Continued)

All the money raised by the Make Way for Molly team is given to a pediatric fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to assist children afflicted with cancer and their families. Since 2007, the Make Way for Molly team has raised $463,483, with the group exceeding its $12,000 goal last year by more than $5,000. Mike, Sam and Jake Barlow have once again committed to riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge this year in honor of Callahan and others they know who have been diagnosed with or lost to cancer, and hope to raise another $10,000.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $20 for adults. They are available in advance or at the door. For more, email Barlowcarpentry@msn.com or call 978-465-6928.
