Welcome to the Sandwich PMC Kids Ride!

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.


The Sandwich PMC Kids Ride 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 over $110K since its inception for the Jimmy Fund.  Over going virtual in 2020, Sandwich PMC Kids looks forward to seeing young riders come together to pedal in search of a cure.  As important as the fundraising is seeing the young riders have so much fun as they do their part for others.  Sandwich PMC Kids is truly grateful to our riders, families, partners and so many civic groups for their dedication and support.  Sandwich PMC Kids looks forward to returning a familiar family friendly format while following any needed guidelines to make is a safe day for all. We encourage you to register and be part of the 2021 Sandwich PMC Kids Ride.

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.  Come join us – you’ll be glad you did!  Closer by the mile…

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.
