The PMC Kids Rides program, presented by the Yawkey Foundation will be Reimagining "Kids Helping Kids" with the PMC Kids Ride for Pedal Partners!
Join the PMC Kids Rides community on Sunday, September 19, 2021 as we ride for PMC Pedal Partners! The PMC Pedal Partner program, presented by MFS, connects children who are being treated at the Jimmy Fund Clinic with PMC teams, riders and PMC Kids Rides.
While we can’t be together physically this year, your family can get involved in the PMC Kids Rides mission by signing up as Reimagined riders. Kids can ride wherever on September 19th and know that 100% of the money they raise goes directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Please make sure to follow all public health regulations and guidelines for your area, while practicing safe social distancing. See the “Safety” section below for more tips.
The PMC Kids Ride gives us the opportunity to work together with the Franklin community and make a significant impact in the fight against cancer. We have all been touched in some way with someone who has had cancer. This ride gives children an opportunity to feel that they can make a difference. It empowers kids to become part of the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) mission of raising money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. This ride also teaches children the value of riding for the benefit of others.
PMC supporters Lisa Marchioni and Lisa Cronin will be organizing the ride along with committee members Sharon Baryluk, Nancy Brogan, Jen Lyons, Joanne Schaefer and Heidi Winiker.
Helmets are required for all riders!
Parents will need to create an account or log in with an existing account in order to register their child or family. When creating an account, please enter the parent's information first as there will be a separate part in registration to enter the child's information.
Once registration is complete, parents will receive an email with information on how to log into their management page to customize donation pages and to track donations.
Reimagined rides are not in-person and riders can ride in their own neighborhood on the day of the ride or whenever they'd like! Reimagined riders will receive a PMC Kids Rides water bottle, personalized bike tag, sign and other goodies.
Riders will need to register by September 7 in order to receive their rider kit in the mail prior to September 19. Riders who register after that date will still receive a goodie bag but we cannot guarantee it will arrive by September 19th.
The fundraising minimum for each rider is $40 and is due by October 31, 2021.
Riders who go above and beyond with their fundraising will be recognized as Heavy Hitters or Breakaway Fundraisers and will receive a special gift in recognition of their fundraising efforts in the late Fall.

The Franklin PMC Kids Rides relies on local sponsors to help keep costs low and so that the PMC can continue to donate 100 percent of every rider-raised dollar directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
