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.
Even without an event last year, the Suffield PMC Kids Ride presented by People's Bank raised $25,000 for PMC, bringing us to $350,000 raised since 2009. As important as the fundraising is the fun we have had and the commitment shown by so many are central to the effort. We are eternally grateful to our riders, families, partners and so many civic groups and leaders in Suffield for their dedication and support.
100% of what we raise goes to PMC. Our events are completely supported and underwritten by our generous sponsors and many partners. And we welcome anyone that has interest)
It is hard to put into words what this event and the support we have received means to us and so many others. The smiles on the faces of our kids (and adults!) are all we need to see. As we continue to come together for this cause, we know the best is ahead of us.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Chris & Denise Nikolis, Co-Coordinators of the Suffield PMC Kids Ride

It is up to each parent to decide which course is appropriate for each child.
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.
