It is with the heaviest of hearts that we've had to reinvent this event this year. However, it is the most proudest of hearts that we introduce the 2020 Winchester PMC Kids Ride 6 Day challenge.
Both as our small community and as part of the bigger PMC Kids Ride community, we have made a huge impact for DFCI! We have raised real money that has made a REAl impact on the fight against cancer. And although we are all having to take a break from our typical lives, cancer is NOT taking a break. Friends, family, neighbors, kids that need our help are all continuing to fight cancer and its effects on their bodies and minds. So that means Winchester Kids MUST RIDE ON!
Make the commitment to join us for a 6 day biking challenge June 8-13th because you want to be a part of giving back & you want to fight cancer! Depending on which "route" you chose, you will be committing to riding each day for that amount of time/distance. We know it is not the same as riding "together" at Lynch, but together we can still make a difference. This reinvented ride remains 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.
Pre-Registration - Friday, June 12
Ride Day - Saturday, June 13
Please park in or around Lynch's Woodside parking lot
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.
Download the rider bike tag and have your kids write their name and color it in before placing it on their bike.
Since the ride is virtual there is no registration fee or fundraising commitment. As such, riders will not receive the traditional goodie bag this year.
Virtual riders do not have a fundraising commitment, however we encourage all riders to set a fundraising goal to help us reach our 2020 goal of raising $41 million for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. 100% of all rider-raised dollars will go directly to lifesaving cancer research and treatment, which is needed now more than ever.
Riders who go above and beyond with their fundraising will be recognized as All Star Fundraisers, Heavy Hitters or Breakaway Fundraisers and will receive a special gift in recognition of their fundraising efforts in late Fall.

General Safety Tips!
Since the program has gone virtual, we do not have any physical volunteer opportunities this year. The PMC encourages all volunteers to consider becoming a PMC Virtual Rider to continue our shared commitment to Dana-Farber. You'll need to log in using a PMC account (not a PMC Kids Rides account) to set up your virtual ride.
You can request your fundraising be directed towards the Winchester PMC Kids Ride by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The Winchester 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.
