Aaron got the surprise of his life when Bergie came to visit with a special gift

If you’ve ever caught an episode of Mark Berg’s Fishing Addiction, you’ll know that Mark and his crew are pretty good at surprising unsuspecting Fishing Addiction members with goodies and fishing experiences like no one else.

Mark’s latest surprise is probably his best one yet. With the help of Suzuki Marine and other supporting brands, Bergie (as he is known by his followers) recently gave the Cutajar family, and specifically their 16 year-old son Aaron, the surprise of his life by making an unexpected visit to their Melbourne home and gifting Aaron a 15hp 4-stroke outboard.

A keen fisherman who also happens to suffer from Spina Bifida, Aaron and his mum Michele won a prize pack from the Fishing Addiction Facebook page in December last year and received some well wishes from Bergie after hearing he had been in hospital at the time of the announcement.

Since then, Bergie’s Facebook followers have received updates on Aaron’s health and the progress works to his project boat that he’s been happily restoring with the help of his dad, Michael, when his health allows. However, the boat, a 3.8m tinnie which Aaron had saved up for, didn’t have anything to power it with.

So, Bergie put the call out to Suzuki Marine to see if we could assist in putting a smile on his face and some horsepower to his tinnie and we were more than happy to be part of this happy story.

Andrew Gonczol, State Sales Manager for Suzuki Marine said, “It gives us great pleasure to team up with Bergie and gift Aaron this motor so he can continue with his fishing adventures – they’re a very deserving family”.

Mark added, “We couldn't be more proud to partner with Suzuki to bring a little joy to this beautiful family, it was our absolute pleasure to meet the Cutajar Family. Aaron's passion for fishing is evident and his determination to complete this project is an inspiration to us all".
