Welcome to the 13th Annual Natick PMC Kids Ride!

2019 FUNDRAISING GOAL- $75,000+!

While this year's fundraising goal is $75,000, a private family foundation has generously offered to MATCH every dollar the Natick PMC Kids Ride raises, up to $100,000!

Join the fun and help us reach our goal!

By riding and fundraising this year, your child has a unique opportunity to double their impact!  As you may know, 100% of the funds raised through the PMC always go to cancer research and treatment at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund.  But this year, 200% of the money our kids raise will go to this purpose. This is truly "kids helping kids" at its finest.  

Please stay for the POST-RIDE PARTY starting at 10 am. Riders and their families can enjoy refreshments, music, a FUN kids raffle, SUPER silent auction, face painting, and many other fun activities!

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/Jimmy Fund, the most successful athletic fundraiser in the nation. Kids also have the option to raise funds in the name of a relative or friend fighting cancer or to dedicate their ride to a special person. Click on "fundraising" in the top menu to learn great ways to make a big difference!

As always, 100% of funds raised goes directly to the cause... you don't get more efficient than that!
