We have other great events planned including a Pasta Dinner at the Suffield VFW on Saturday, April 1 and Country Comes to Hilltop Farm, on Saturday, September 16. More to come on all of those great nights.
The Suffield PMC Kids Ride, presented by Koverage Insurance Group is back and we can’t wait. It is our 12th event and we look forward to adding to the $450,000 raised for The Jimmy Fund/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute since 2012.
We will gather at 10 am on May 13 at the McAlister School. Kids age 3-16 are welcome to ride, choosing from 2 safe, well-supervised courses. There are great volunteer and sponsorship opportunities as well. And we will have a fun time from 11 am to 1 pm with lunch for all guests, live music, a raffle/auction, playground and more.
We had our best year ever in 2022, raising $70,000 for PMC and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Just as important as the fundraising, we have a lot of fun doing all of this. 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 The Jimmy Fund/Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Our events are completely supported and underwritten by our generous sponsors and many partners. And we welcome anyone that has interest in helping.
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

General Safety Tips!
Get the entire family involved and support the event by volunteering! Be a ride marshal, work at a water stop, help distribute snacks and more. Volunteers will need to create an account and then will be able to select the position(s) that they would like.
The PMC strongly recommends that all participants – including riders who are eligible – be vaccinated to attend a PMC Kids Ride.
The PMC Pedal Partner Program is a wonderful way for riders to connect with a child who has been affected by cancer. PMC Pedal Partners are pediatric oncology patients at the Jimmy Fund Clinic who are paired with PMC Kids Rides or PMC teams.
If you know a child in treatment at the Jimmy Fund who is interested in being a PMC Pedal Partner for a PMC Kids Ride, please contact Sophie Muggia, PMC Pedal Partner Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org
