Once again, I’ll be riding in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, a 192-mile ride from Sturbridge, MA to Provincetown, MA. All of the money raised by the Pan-Mass Challenge goes to support the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. I’m very lucky in that all of the money that I raise is held in a specific account that my teammates and I can use to directly fund programs to support pediatric oncology patients and their families. Last year I raised over $80,000 and our team raised a total of $135,000. This year we’ve expanded the team and hope to break $150,000.
So for now, I’ll be blogging very sporadically and cycling more regularly. If you could please visit my PMC website, www.rideforthem.com, I’d appreciate it. There you can read the stories of the children that I ride in honor and in memory of.
This year he’s commemorating two teen patients that died fighting cancer, Jeff and Allison. Their heartbreaking stories are on his website. There’s also pictures and some news videos. We wish him, his team, and his patients well.
It’s easy to help the cause.
