Argyle Brewing Company 5th Ever Argyle Brewing Company Fun Run-

Good friends Alisa & Dan DiBlasi and Randy & Bev Dumas invented The First Ever ABC Run just weeks after the Argyle Brewing Company opened its doors to the public. They had so much fun that they decided to do it again and helped organize the official Second Ever ABC Run. However, this run took on a whole other meaning when Alisa was diagnosed with breast cancer. Alisa took this challenge head on and inspired us to create an annual run that would bring more awareness to breast cancer research. Thankfully, Alisa's cancer is in remission and now runs as a survivor who wants to have fun and challenges all of us to do the same.


So, please join our team and have fun while you're at it. Help us support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation by making a tax-deductible donation.

Remember, every dollar counts. But if you can't make a donation right now, help me reach our goal by sharing this page on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat..... Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to our page!

The idea is to:

  1. Donate $10.00, copy, paste your bib (see Below) to a WORD Doc. Then print your own bib.
  2. Start 10 miles away from the Depot in Cambridge (our other Tap Room) and get there (anyway you choose; run, walk, hop, skip, crawl, bike..... you get the ides)
  3. Join the fun on Sunday April 15th, 2018 at 3:00 pm.
  4. Suggested starting points include A.rgyle, B.salem (B is silent) and/or C.ambridge. There will be food music and of course, beer. Have fun!

Thank you so much for your generosity. You are truly helping us bring an end to cancer.
