Man having a beer in every Mass. town to benefit cancer research

MENDON — Todd Ruggere clasped his bottle in his left hand. Maxwell the Mule latched onto his with his teeth. Each took a swig. The camera shutters snapped, and the deed was done; 71 down, 280 to go.

Ruggere has set himself the task of drinking a beer in each of the 351 towns and cities in Massachusetts by the end of 2013. What started as a quixotic whim has taken on the overtones of a noble quest: At each stop he tries to nail down a donation for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
