We are like you.
We've been touched by cancer in too many ways not to do anything about it.
We have seen cancer take loved ones, we've seen them battle the disease and win, and some of us are cancer survivors ourselves.
Most of us don't know anything about how to cure the disease, so we do our best to raise money for the smart doctors at Dana Farber Cancer Institute by pedaling our bikes around Massachusetts and drinking beer.
Seems like a good way to go.
The Pan Mass Challenge
The Pan-Massachusetts Challenge is the nation's original fundraising bike-a-thon and today raises more money than any other athletic fundraising event in the country. 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 has contributed $500 million to lifesaving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute since its 1980 inception.
