We enable thousands of volunteers to raise millions of dollars for the Jimmy Fund through an annual bike-a-thon: the Pan Massachusetts Challenge. The PMC is a fully supported bike-a-thon, with food and water stops, medical and mechanical assistance, luggage transportation and lodging. This year, about 5,000 riders will ride in one of 11 routes all over Massachusetts. Hundreds of these riders will be kids!
We were founded in 1980 by Billy Starr and have since raised $303 million for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. But "we" really are our volunteer riders: some are trained triathletes, others weekend warriors. Some are riding in honor of a loved one who has succumbed to cancer, survived cancer, fought cancer or treated cancer. Some have even survived cancer themselves. But they all have one thing in common: they are passionate about raising money to support the important work of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
We want to empower everyone to fight cancer!
