Welcome to the Lower Cape PMC Kids Ride!

Welcome to the Lower Cape Kid’s PMC Ride! Get GEARED up for FUN!
This year will be our 13th Lower Cape Ride. We will honor a special child in treatment at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute as our pedal partner.  We will also celebrate our previous pedal partner, Sawyer Craig.  Many of you know him as “Super Sawyer”. He is now cancer free! It is an honor to support these children and their families. Let’s come together as a community and show them our love!

Just like the adult PMC ride, our Kids Ride will raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI). And, just like the adult ride, 100% of all rider-raised donations will go straight to the Jimmy Fund and used to support cancer research, patient care and families of treated patients.

The Lower Cape PMC Kids Ride is a way for children to become involved in philanthropy and community activities at an early age while learning the valuable lesson of how good it feels to do something that benefits others. At the same time, the ride promotes a healthy and active lifestyle.
We also want to celebrate the kids that participate in the ride and teach them that they can have a great time doing something while helping others. We will have music by the WROR Street Team, games, PMC temporary tattoos, face painting, and an ice cream truck! Bring family and friends, let’s celebrate the Lower Cape PMC spirit together!

Safety

  1. Wear a properly-fitted helmet (children and adults must wear helmets if they are riding).
  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, make sure to yell “on your left!”
  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. 

Register to Volunteer

To make this a successful event we need lots of volunteers! Teenagers (13+) and adults are welcome to register online as a volunteer. All volunteers will receive an official PMC Kids Rides volunteer t-shirt!

Sponsorship Opportunities

The Lower Cape 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.
