2019 PMC Kids Hingham South Shore + Multiple Other Locations

Note: The Bicycle Link is proud to provide tech support to the PMC Kids S. Shore for the last 7 years and counting

PMC Kids Rides became an official PMC program in 2005 as a way to include young cyclists in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge mission raising money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. The program engages youth in philanthropy, instills the value of working for the benefit of others, and promotes athletic fitness and physical activity.

The PMC Kids Rides Program offers children, parents, and neighbors an opportunity to work together to create individual bike-a-thons in neighborhoods, at schools, or in business complexes. These rides enable children between the ages of 3 and 15 to ride their bikes and solicit sponsors to donate money to cancer research.

Pan Mass Challenge - PMC (2 Days) 2018

The PMC Mission

Until we find a cure

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.  Click here to learn more about how Dana-Farber uses PMC funds.

Why Ride

Giving back never felt so good

Riding in the PMC is a way to channel physical, mental and emotional energy into something much greater than the athletic accomplishment that is gained by riding up to 192 miles. PMC cyclists use their strength to help those who cannot. With each mile pedaled, the PMC brings researchers closer to finding cures for various types of cancer that affect millions of people each year.

PMC cyclists are a family — a unified force working toward a common goal. The personal success achieved by riding in the PMC and raising money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is consistently described as unbeatable. PMC riders say it is the highlight of their summers. Nearly 75% of those who ride in the PMC are alumni who return annually with renewed enthusiasm and deeper commitments to both the ride and the goal.

PMC cyclists are athletes, weekend warriors, and folks with minimal cycling experience. Regardless of their physical condition, those who ride in the PMC go to the starting line with an emotional commitment to helping others, while joining in an effort much larger than themselves. In return, they experience a powerfully inspiring weekend, make new friends, and become a part of an extended family. PMCers ride because they can, for others who cannot.
