Welcome

The PMC Kids Rides program, presented by the Yawkey Foundation will be Reimagining "Kids Helping Kids" with the PMC Kids Ride for Pedal Partners!

Join the PMC Kids Rides community on Sunday, September 19, 2021 as we ride for PMC Pedal Partners! The PMC Pedal Partner program, presented by MFS, connects children who are being treated at the Jimmy Fund Clinic with PMC teams, riders and PMC Kids Rides.

While we can’t be together physically this year, your family can get involved in the PMC Kids Rides mission by signing up as Reimagined riders. Kids can ride wherever on September 19th and know that 100% of the money they raise goes directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Please make sure to follow all public health regulations and guidelines for your area, while practicing safe social distancing. See the “Safety” section below for more tips.

Register to Ride Reimagined

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. 

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.

Reimagined rides are not in-person and riders can ride in their own neighborhood on the day of the ride or whenever they'd like! Reimagined riders will receive a PMC Kids Rides water bottle, personalized bike tag, sign and other goodies.

Riders will need to register by September 7 in order to receive their rider kit in the mail prior to September 19. Riders who register after that date will still receive a goodie bag but we cannot guarantee it will arrive by September 19th. 

Fundraising

The fundraising minimum for each rider is $40 and is due by October 31, 2021. 

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 in the late Fall. 

  • Heavy Hitter – $450+, riders will receive a PMC Kids Rides bike bell and certificate.
  • Breakaway Fundraiser – $950+, riders will receive a piece of PMC merchandise (chosen from a list of available items).

Pedal Partners

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.

Julian from Quincy

image_thumbnail.ashxJulian is a 3.5 year old from Quincy, Massachusetts. He loves puppies, M&Ms, playing with his older brother Eli and playing with cars and trucks. In November of 2014, just after his first birthday, Julian was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, pediatric liver cancer. After an attempted tumor resection and 8 rounds of chemotherapy, he was listed for a liver transplant, which he received in May 2015. He finished his cancer treatments in July 2015, and although he will always receive follow-up for his transplant, he is doing well. He is now able to be an active and happy toddler who enjoys life to the fullest!

Poppy from Marshfield

Screen Shot 2017-04-28 at 10.27.43 AMPoppy is a sweet, engaging 5-year-old with a fantastic sense of humor! She lives in Marshfield with her dad, mom, little sister Hazel, and her dog Penny. Poppy was diagnosed with retinoblastoma (a tumor on her retina) at the age of 4 months. With the timely diagnosis and treatment, Poppy was considered to be in remission before her first birthday. She continues to see her opthalmologist, Dr. Ankoor Shah, every six months for an exam under anesthesia to ensure that there isn't any tumor regrowth. Throughout all of her treatments and followup exams, Poppy has never lost her happy-go-lucky disposition! With each subsequent office exam, Poppy's vision continues to improve.

Sophia from Quincy

image_thumbnail.ashx-2Sophia is 10 years old and lives in Quincy, MA. She lives with her mom, dad, and her 6-year-old sister Zoe. Sophia is in the fifth grade at Beechwood Elementary School in Quincy. She loves school and her favorite subject is math. Sophia works very hard in school and hasn't allowed treatment to interfere with her love and success in school. During her free time, Sophia loves to dance. She dances for Velocity Dance Company in Quincy, and is part of the Glitter team. She does ballet, tap and jazz, with jazz being her favorite. Although she is not currently able to participate in dance, she still attends all her classes to watch her group and video the dances in the hopes that she will be ready if she is able to dance in the recital. In December 2014, Sophia was diagnosed with LCH, a rare disease involving clonal proliferation of Langerhans cells, abnormal cells deriving from bone marrow, which manifested in a bone lesion on her C2 vertebrae. She began chemotherapy in January 2015 and wore a halo, and now a hard collar, to limit mobility in her neck. Sophia, however is tolerating treatment very well, and maintains a positive and resilient attitude. She looks forward to her treatments ending and being able to enjoy all of the activities she loved before her diagnosis.

Elena from Whitman

image_thumbnail.ashx-3Elena is a happy, healthy and active 8-year-old girl in second grade! On July 1, 2011, when she was two years old, Elena was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). She was inpatient at Children’s Hospital for 45 days and then received treatment at the Jimmy Fund Clinic until August 9, 2013, when she had her last dose of chemo!

She will be four years off treatment in August 2017. She is still seen at the Jimmy Fund every 6 months and we are hoping she will go down to once a year at her next visit. She loves swimming, going on vacation and spending time with her family and friends. She looks forward to the South Shore Kids ride and cheering on Team Perini every year. See you all in August! Go Team Perini!
