The PMC is a favorite Team Psycho charity. We encourage you to support the team members who ride to raise funds for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
The Pan-Mass Challenge, founded in 1980, is the nation’s original fundraising bike-a-thon, and today raises more money for charity than any other athletic fundraising event in the country. A model of fundraising efficiency, the PMC has donated 100 percent of every rider-raised dollar directly to cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute since 2007.
The PMC is a fully supported bike-a-thon with food and water stops, mechanical and medical assistance, lodging and luggage, bike and individual transportation. Whether it’s 25 or 192 miles, every mile pedaled equals funds raised for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s life-saving research and treatment. The 2019 goal is $60 million.
Cyclists choose one or two days; 12 routes from 25 to 192 miles that cater to all levels of cycling strength and fundraising capacity. The longest route is the two-day, 192-mile ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown, and the shortest is a one-day, 25-mile ride from Babson College to Patriot Place in Foxboro.
People travel from around the world to participate. Thousands of riders and volunteers have lost loved ones to the disease and still more ride in honor of those in treatment. Over 900 PMC riders and volunteers make up the PMC Living Proof community who were previously treated or are undergoing treatment. The camaraderie shared by riders, volunteers, and supporters is so strong that even the doctors at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute join their patients as teammates, riding toward a unified goal.
Ride to bring the PMC closer by the mile.
