The Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) is pleased to share that the Yawkey Foundation is the Presenting Sponsor of the 2022 PMC Kids Rides program, marking more than a decade of support for the PMC. PMC Kids Rides are mini bike-a-thons that involve young cyclists in the PMC’s mission by providing them the opportunity to fight cancer just like adults and raise money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (Dana-Farber). The program allows children, parents, and others to work together to create individual bike-a-thons in neighborhoods, at schools, or in business complexes.

Today, the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC), the two-day bike-a-thon that pioneered the athletic fundraising industry, announced a record-breaking $64 million donation to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (Dana-Farber), a world leader in adult and pediatric cancer treatment and research, and its Jimmy Fund. This impressive gift raised by the PMC community far surpassed fundraising expectations this year, topping the organization’s pre-pandemic record $63 million donation in 2019. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, the PMC has raised more than $114 million for Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund, bucking industry-wide trends of decreased fundraising and engagement stemming from public health crisis.
The 2021 PMC Kids Rides Program fundraising contributed to this record-breaking gift to Dana-Farber.
