Welcome to the Wilmington PMC Kids Ride!

The Wilmington PMC Kids Ride is ready for their 14th ride! Last year we raised over $15,000! The ride will continue to be headquartered at the Boutwell Elementary School in Wilmington. We are hoping for 200 children, pre-kindergarten through sixth grade with a goal of $18,000!

Ride History

The ride was started by Sue Hendee and Carolyn Priem, and has collected just over $170,000 to help fight cancer! Sue is a 28 year PMC rider and a physical education teacher in Wilmington. Carolyn’s son was treated at the Jimmy Fund Clinic and is now a healthy high school student. Five years ago we welcomed Sheila Salois as another coordinator who has taken over for Carolyn. Sheila is a physical education teacher at Andover High School and Carolyn continues to help us out at the refreshment tent the day of the ride.

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 Wilmington 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.
