---- — To the editor:

On behalf of Team Lungstrong, the local team that will bike in the Pan Mass Challenge this summer to raise awareness and funds for lung cancer research, we would like to thank the following groups and individuals who made our April 12 fundraising event at the Blue Ocean Music Hall a tremendous success:

Phil and Wayne Capalupo and Kathy Aiello of the Blue Ocean Music Hall for donating space; the Pour Boys and Lauren Murdock for donating their musical talents; Henkel Corporation for covering the event’s overhead costs; our stage hand volunteers from Endicott College and University of New Hampshire; Bob and Jennifer Grunbeck; John Murdock; Katie Enaire; Heidi Cronin of Breathe Again massage; HBO; Bob Renaud; Kathy Bayek of Lia Sophia jewelry; Coleen Magowan, Wicked Cool Seaglass; Caryann Davis at Beverly Massage Therapy and Wellness Center; Kerilee Pelletrino of Massage Therapy & Wellness Center; Latitudes and all of the friends, family members and members of the general public who came out to dance with us and support this important cause.

Thanks to all of them, we are well on our way to meeting our fundraising goals. You will see us pedaling around town as we prepare for the Aug. 3 and 4 event!

The “5 Pedals”: Anne Enaire, Berta Grunbeck, Laurie Irwin, Heather King and Robin Schell
