Welcome to the Easton PMC Kids Ride!

The Easton PMC Kids Ride is BACK in-person!

There’s a lot riding on us! 100% of your donations and monies raised support cancer research and treatment at a time when it is needed more than ever. We are united in battling cancer as well as in commitment to nurture the community we have built!

Follow @eastonpmckidsride on Facebook and check your emails for all event updates! 

Thank you to Emma and all our Pedal Partners, families and loved ones for inspiring us every day!

PMC Kids Rides give children the opportunity to experience the joy of volunteerism and charitable giving through physical fitness and community spirit. Money raised through the event goes to the Pan-Mass Challenge, the most successful athletic fundraiser in the nation benefiting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and helping to fund cancer research and improve treatments at DFCI and around the world. 

BIG virtual “HIGH-FIVE” to all of riders, families, volunteers, donors and sponsors who continue to help to make it possible for us to fundraise!  100 percent of rider-raised dollars benefit research, treatment and care for children and families impacted by cancer. All riders, volunteers, schools, and town supporters and community sponsors are essential to the success of the PMC Kids Ride! In 2019, our community of 350+ riders and 100+ volunteers and supporters raised $52,000! A gift of hope!

Please be sure to register for the appropriate route or Virtual Rider category. PLEASE REGISTER YOUR RIDER ACCORDINGLY TO HELP US HAVE A SAFE RIDE FOR ALL RIDERS.

  • Droukas Wonder Lot – A fun, contained course in the FRONT LOT of Blanche A. Ames Elementary for anyone 5 years old and younger, on tricycles, balance bikes, scooters, big wheels, and riders needing support with their training wheels. Riders loop around within the Wonder Lot for as many loops as they like during the one-hour ride.  Parents/guardians are allowed to stay within this course to support their riders.  
  • Power Loop Rider: Riders 5+ who are able to follow bicycle safety rules and ride with a group and without parental support, including navigating turns and inclines. Riders with training wheels are allowed if your rider is able to follow safe riding rules for riding in a group, navigate corners and hills, and do so without support from parents/guardians. Power Loop riders will follow road from Blanche A. Ames Elementary up to the Easton Middle school, loop around EMS parking lot, and follow road back to Blanche A. Ames Start/Finish. Riders can complete as many loops as possible within one-hour.  Parents are NOT allowed to stay within this course to support their riders.
  • Virtual Rider: Virtual riders are those who would prefer to ride on their own and not in person at the event. Virtual riders who raise $50 or more will receive an official PMC Kids Rides t-shirt and water bottle at the end of May for spring rides. Virtual riders have no registration fee or fundraising commitment.

Register to Ride

Parents will need to create an account or log in with an existing account to register their child or family. When creating an account, please enter the parent's information first, as there will be a separate section in registration to enter the child's information.

Under "Event Option" parents will be able to select a route for each child. Riders have a $20 registration fee and a $40 fundraising minimum. Parents will need to sign a waiver and agree to the fundraising commitment in order to complete registration. In-person riders will receive their rider kit at the ride.

Virtual Rider

Parents will be able to select the “Virtual Rider” route if their child will not be riding in person but still wants to support the PMC Kids Rides program. Virtual riders can ride in their own neighborhood on the day of the ride or whenever they'd like! If a virtual rider raises $50 or more, they will receive an official PMC Kids Rides t-shirt and water bottle at the end of September for fall rides. 

Once registration is complete for both in-person and virtual riders, parents will receive a confirmation email with information on how to log into their management page to customize donation pages and to track donations. 

The PMC strongly recommends that all participants – including riders who are eligible – be vaccinated to attend a PMC Kids Ride.


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.

  • Heavy Hitter –$450, riders will receive a special PMC Kids Rides item and a certificate.
  • Breakaway Fundraiser –$950, riders will receive a special PMC Kids Rides item and a certificate.

General Safety Tips!

  1. Wear a properly-fitted helmet (children are required to wear helmets when participating).
  2. Ride in control – this is not a race.
  3. Hands should remain on handlebars.
  4. Never wear any kind of headphones. You need to hear clearly.
  5. Follow the ride guides and volunteers.
  6. When passing other rides, make sure to yell “on your left!” Never pass riders on the right.
  7. If you need to slow down or stop to cross an intersection or obstacle, yell “slowing” or “stopping” to alert those behind you.

Each PMC Kids Ride has a licensed medical professional on site.


Get the entire family involved and support the event by volunteering! Be a ride marshal, work at a water stop, help distribute snacks and more. Volunteers will need to create an account and then will be able to select the position(s) that they would like.

The PMC strongly recommends that all participants – including riders who are eligible – be vaccinated to attend a PMC Kids Ride.

PMC Pedal Partner Program

The PMC Pedal Partner Program is a wonderful way for riders to connect with a child who has been affected by cancer. PMC Pedal Partners are pediatric oncology patients at the Jimmy Fund Clinic who are paired with PMC Kids Rides or PMC teams.

If you know a child in treatment at the Jimmy Fund who is interested in being a PMC Pedal Partner for a PMC Kids Ride, please contact Sophie Muggia, PMC Pedal Partner Program Coordinator, at sophie@pmc.org
