BENEFITING: PAN MASSACHUSETTS CHALLENGE TRUST
EVENT DATE: Aug 02, 2014
I will be riding my bike 192 miles from Sturbridge Ma. to Provincetown Ma.To raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.The Pan-Mass Challenge, presented by the Boston Red Sox Foundation and New Balance, is the nation's original fundraising bike-a-thon, and today raises more money for charity than any other athletic fundraising event in the country. A model of fundraising efficiency, since 2007 the PMC has donated 100% of every rider-raised dollar directly to cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund.
The PMC is so well-known in cycling and fundraising circles, that each year people travel from around the world to participate. Thousands of riders and volunteers have lost loved ones to the disease, still more ride in honor of those in treatment, and over 300 PMC riders are cancer survivors. The camaraderie shared by riders, volunteers, and supporters is so strong that even the doctors at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute join their patients as teammates, riding toward a unified goal.
Since its 1980 inception, the PMC has contributed $414 million to lifesaving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
