Welcome to the Sandwich PMC Kids Ride!

The Sandwich PMC Kids Ride is a mini-bike-a-thon for children ages 3-14. It provides kids the opportunity to participate in the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) mission of raising money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston, just like adults that ride the "Big PMC."

PMC Kids Rides are a blast for kids, friends and family! It also engages youth in philanthropy, instills the value of working for the benefit of others and promotes physical fitness. Most importantly, 100% of all PMC Kids rider-raised funds go directly to Dana Farber Cancer Institute to support cancer treatment and research.

Established in 2017, Sandwich PMC Kids has raised $97K for the Jimmy Fund.  Starting with 62 riders in 2017, 155 Rider pedaled more than 1200 collective miles in search of a cure.  This year we encourage you to join us and help Sandwich PMC Kids reach our 2020 goal of 200 riders and $45K for the Jimmy Fund.

Every family has been touched by cancer. PMC Kids provides an awesome venue for kids to honor both loved ones lost too soon and those who continue to inspire us as they live with cancer.  We hope you will join us for this year's ride. Thank you,

Riders will set off from the Sandwich Harbormaster Office Parking Lot and ride the Cape Cod Canal Path. Riders can ride as far as they want but are encouraged to set a goal and choose ‘their bridge’ based on age and ability. Riders will be sent off in waves to avoid congestion on the path. There will be adult volunteers on the path to ensure the safety of all riders.

Register to Ride

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. During registration there is the option to join or create a team, as well as create a family page. Parents will need to sign a waiver and commit to the $35 fundraising minimum per rider.

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.

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 ensure a safe, successful ride, we need adults and young adults (ages 15 and up) to act as volunteers. Please sign up as a volunteer to see the available positions and to register as a volunteer. All volunteers receive a PMC volunteer shirt.

Sponsorship Opportunities

The Sandwich PMC Kids Ride 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. We promote all sponsors to our riders, volunteers, and their families throughout the community.
