This weekend is my annual bicycle trek across Massachusetts. 192 miles of riding over two days. Generally, weather permitting, it is a lovely ride with lots of fit and motivated people. Plus, there are fluffernutter sandwiches at every rest stop and it is generally a fun experience raising money for cancer research.
I am in my tenth year of riding the Pan Mass Challenge. It is a 192 mile ride from Sturbridge, MA to Provincetown, MA, which is the very tip of Cape Cod. It is a fun group ride with about 5,000 people. Last year we raised $60 Million for Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. I think PMC is the third largest fundraising event in the country. All donations go to Dana Farber, as all costs are covered by the riders or donated services. Tito’s Vodka and Harpoon Beer are dedicated sponsors as are the Bruins and other Boston related teams.

THE PMC DONATES 100% OF EVERY RIDER-RAISED DOLLAR TO DANA-FARBER CANCER INSTITUTE Founded in 1980, the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) is an annual bike-a-thon that today raises more money for charity than any other single event in the country. © 2023 – Pan-Mass Challenge
