My mom and brother are riding in the Pan Mass Challenge again this summer. 100% of the donations go to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund. They ride to give hope in the face of cancer. This year will be especially significant we they will be riding in memory of my dad who passed away this January. Here is a picture of my mom, dad and brother after they finished the Pan Mass Challenge this past summer.

An excerpt form the Pan Mass Challenge site:
The Pan-Massachusetts 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 than any other athletic fundraising event in the country. The PMC is 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. The camaraderie shared by riders, volunteers, and supporters is among the PMC’s greatest attributes. Doctors at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute join their patients as teammates, riding for a unified goal. Over 200 PMC riders are cancer survivors. Thousands of riders and volunteers have lost loved ones to the disease. Still more ride in honor of those in treatment.
