It’s easy to donate to PMC Kids Rides. Whether you donate to a rider, family, Kids Ride or make a general gift, 100 percent of your gift will benefit Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

New for 2020: PMC Kids Rides Facebook Fundraisers are fully integrated with Kids Rides families' and riders' fundraising so donations made to a Facebook Fundraiser are instantly credited to their Kids Ride fundraising total!
PMC Kids Ride parents or guardians can create a Facebook Fundraiser through their Manage page. Your Facebook Fundraiser will use the story, photo, and fundraising goal from your PMC Kids Ride family page if you have several children riding or your child's PMC Kids Ride profile page if he or she is the only family member riding.
If you have more than one child participating, your family page will be used for your Facebook Fundraiser. If you have multiple children riding and do not yet have a family page, email email@example.com to set up a family page; you need a family page to create a Facebook Fundraiser.
There are no fees for donating through Facebook Fundraisers, allowing the PMC to maintain 100 percent pass-through of all rider-raised dollars to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
