THE STORY:

On Saturday, August 1st I will be embarking on my sixth Pan-Mass Challenge(PMC) ride to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund's lifesaving mission to conquer cancer. The goal of the PMC is to raise $45 million this year to bring its total raised , since 1980, to $500 million-yes, you read that correctly, that's a half a billion dollars!!!

My fundraising goals are somewhat more modest at $10,000. Yes, that is a lot, but with your help I can make it. After all-if I can get this 55 year "old" body to ride a bike 192 miles in 2 days for this great cause I'm sure it's worth a couple of dollars from you. 

Cancer research has always been of interest to me because cancer cost me my best friend when I was in my early teens when I lost my grandmother, Eileen "Memere" Levesque. My Memere was always there for me-she had the most beautiful heart of anyone I have ever met, her love was unconditional and she had an infectious smile that would light up a room. It was the first time I had lost someone close to me and it took me quite a while to recover. I dedicated my first PMC ride in her honor and she has remained my inspiration every time I ride.

Riding in the PMC has been a great experience and given me the chance to see 1st hand what is being accomplished. I will always remember the sign on someones front lawn thanking the PMC riders, it was a simple sign, a half sheet of plywood-sprayed painted that read "Because of you I'm 8 years old". And there have been many similar signs and heart warming stories I have heard or learned about through my previous 5 rides.

This year, after a 5 year hiatus, I return to the PMC, but I will be riding for the Boston Bruins Foundation PMC team. Your donations to my ride will be donated to the PMC as a single donation from the Boston Bruins Foundation. So I ask that you think of me as I ride 192 miles August 1st and 2nd in 90 degree temperature from Sturbridge MA to Provincetown MA, but more importantly think of all of your loved ones, your friends and acquaintences that you know whose lives have either been lost to or effected by cancer and make a donation. 

Sincerely                                                                                                                                  Jody Gage
