The Boston PMC Kids Ride is just around the corner! Are you ready to ride?
Please join the Boston community for the fourth annual Boston PMC Kids Ride taking place Saturday, October 6th from 10am-1pm at the Pope John Paul II Park in Dorchester, MA. This year’s event features a fun filled day of:

And more! All the while raising funds to beat cancer! 100% of the money raised will be donated to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to fund cancer research and treatment.
ABOUT THE EVENT
We are thrilled to bring the PMC Kids ride to one of the greatest cities. Kids from all around will gather together to cycle for a cure for cancer. Each rider will commit to raising $30, in which 100% will be given to the Jimmy Fund/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to aid in life saving cancer research and treatment. Help us reach our $7,000 fundraising goal! Join in the fight against cancer- sign up, cycle, and have some fun!
The Pan-Mass Challenge has been committed to finding a cure since 1980. Since its start, the PMC has raised $598 million for the Jimmy Fund/Dana Farber Cancer Institute. In 2017, the PMC contributed $51 million. The PMC Kids rides contributed over $850,000 to this goal!
