This vessel at Port of Anacortes Pier 2 grabbed my attention, especially because of the name “All Aboard for a Cure.” I did an Internet search, made a contact and got the following story from company representative Mark Gullickson: “In March of 2011, Harley and Lela Franco were honored by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in recognition of their many years of fundraising and contributions made to patients with Type 1 Diabetes. The theme of that evening, ‘All Aboard for a Cure,’ alluded to the fact that many times over the years, Harley and Lela had donated Harley Marine tugboat cruises to various galas, including the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, to help reach fundraising goals. The event that year made $2.66 million and is recognized as one of JDRF’s most successful events of all time. The name ALL ABOARD FOR A CURE recognizes Harley Marine Services’ commitment to giving back and hopes to encourage others to do so when they see the barge sailing through their waterways.”
