Welcome to the Winchester PMC Kids Ride!

We are very excited to announce Winchester's 5th Annual PMC Kids Ride to take place on June 15, 2019! We will again be riding at Lynch Elementary School and the adjacent neighborhood. Thank you to the neighbors that continue to welcome and support us as well as the WPD and DPW that keep all the riders safe on the roads! 

The ride is intended to both raise cancer awareness as well as get Winchester and surrounding communities’ students involved in giving back and being active in the community at an early age. Just like the adult ride, 100% of all rider raised donations will go straight to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) and used to support cancer research, patient care and families of patients currently involved in treatment.

Last year, the PMC Kids rides collectively fundraised $950,000 for the DFCI!!!!  That is REAL money that will make a REAL impact on the fight against cancer!  We are hoping as community that we can build on our previous years' successes and push ourselves to give back even more this year!

Make the commitment to join us because you want be a part of giving back and you want to help fight cancer! This ride is dedicated to all of our loved ones whose lives were cut short by cancer and to those who continue to inspire us as they live with or have beaten cancer.
