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!

Easton PMC Kids Ride sponsors help make this a fun community event each year and allow us to maximize our fundraising potential with 100% of rider-raised dollars benefiting pediatric and adult patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through The Jimmy Fund. Please contact Julie Paquin at email@example.com if you have questions about how your business can support this fundraiser, bringing together community to celebrate.
The Easton 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.
