It's that time of year! The seventh annual Acton-Boxboro-Maynard PMC Kids Ride will take place on June 2, 2019, from 8:30 am to 12 pm at NARA Park in Acton, and we are hoping to have 200+ kids of all ages participating in this event. Last year we had over 200 kids come out to ride raising over $53,000 for Dana-Farber!
Help us surpass last year's success by signing up today as a rider or volunteer!
The PMC Kids Rides program offers children, parents, and neighbors an opportunity to work together to create individual bike-a-thons in neighborhoods, at schools, or in business complexes. These rides enable children to ride their bikes and solicit sponsors to donate money to cancer research. 100% of all money raised at this event and by the children will go directly to DFCI via the PMC.
In 2018, the Pan-Mass Challenge raised $56 million for Dana-Farber. Make the commitment to join us because you want to help cure cancer! This ride is dedicated to all of our loved ones whose lives were cut short by cancer and to those who continue to inspire us as they live with cancer. The Acton-Boxboro-Maynard PMC Kids Ride will bring us "closer by the mile" to a cure!
We look forward to seeing you at the ride and thank you for your support!

The Day of the Ride in Detail:
Designated parking for the event - The entire event will be held up by Miracle Field. Part of the upper parking lot will be closed off as the Big Kid ride will go through there. If no parking is available in the upper lot, please park in the back spots of the lower lot by the beach and walk up the walking path to our registration area. Parking attendants will be on location to help direct you.
ALL RIDERS (CHILDREN AND ADULTS) MUST WEAR PROPERLY FITTING AND SECURED BIKE HELMETS. Representatives from Pedal Power Bike Shop will be on hand to provide complimentary bike safety checks and handle minor bike repairs. Please review Bike Path Safety and Etiquette prior to the ride.
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. During registration there is the option to join or create a team, as well as create a family page. Parents will need to sign a waiver and commit to the $30 fundraising minimum per rider.
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.
The fundraising minimum for each rider is $30 and is due by September 1, 2019.
Riders who go above and beyond with their fundraising will be recognized Heavy Hitters or Breakaway Fundraisers and will receive a special gift in recognition of their fundraising efforts.
