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 $30 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 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 Sturbridge 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.
