PMC Donates Record-Breaking $64 Million to Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund

The 2021 PMC $64 Million Donation Brings Two-Year Fundraising to $114 Million Despite COVID-19 Pandemic

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.
