BENEFITING: PAN MASSACHUSETTS CHALLENGE TRUST
EVENT DATE: Aug 03, 2013
I will be riding 160+ miles over 2 days in support of cancer research and treatment, a disease which is still unfortunately all-too personal for the majority of us. The PMC was started in 1980, and is now the largest atheltic fundraising event in the country. This is my first year participating and while i am normally more inclined to feet-on-the-ground type sports, I am excited to be riding alongside my Berkshire Partner's teammates and Williams friends in support of such a great cause. A little more from the website:
The Pan-Mass Challenge raises money for life-saving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through an annual bike-a-thon that crosses the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Since its founding in 1980, the PMC has successfully melded support from committed cyclists, volunteers, corporate sponsors and individual contributors. All are essential to the PMC's goal and model: to attain maximum fundraising efficiency while increasing its annual gift. Our hope and aspiration is to provide Dana-Farber's doctors and researchers with the necessary resources to discover cures for all cancers.
