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
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…
Riders can choose one of four routes:
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.
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.
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.

You'll need to log in using a PMC account (not a PMC Kids Rides account) to set up your virtual ride.

We are honored to have Isaac as the Sandwich PMC Kids Ride Pedal Partner. The PMC Pedal Partner program provides a way for riders to connect with a child who has cancer and bring real meaning to their participation in the event. We invite you to read a little about Isaac and learn how his bravery inspires us to ride, volunteer and fundraise for this important cause.
Isaac is 5 years old and lives on Cape Cod with his parents and little brother. Isaac loves playing with his 4-year-old brother and hopes to grow up to be fireman. Isaac was diagnosed with ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia) on March 3, 2017, at just 3 years old. Since diagnosis, he has had to spend 75 days in the hospital. Over the past 2 years, he has bravely made regular trips to the Jimmy Fund Clinic to receive chemo, blood transfusions, and other procedures. He completed a 2 year treatment plan on April 17th and is now considered in remission.
