Welcome to the Fifth Annual Acton-Boxboro-Maynard PMC Kids Ride!
It's that time of year! The fifth annual Acton-Boxboro-Maynard PMC KIDS Ride is being planned; and will take place on June 4, 2017 from 8:30 – 12:00pm at Nara Park in Acton, MA and we are hoping to have 200+ kids of all ages participating in this event. Last year was our fourth year; and even in the rain we had almost 200 kids come out to ride raising over $30,600. This year, our ride will pass $100,000 raised for Dana-Farber!!! Help us surpass last year's success by signing up today as a rider or volunteer!
PMC KIDS Rides became an official PMC program in 2005 as a way to include young cyclists in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenges’ mission of raising money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. Since then, the rides have raised over 6.9 million dollars. The program engages youth in philanthropy, instills the value of working for the benefit of others, and promotes athletic fitness and physical activity. The PMC KIDS Rides Program offers children, parents, and neighbors an opportunity to work together to create individual bike-a-thons in neighborhoods, at schools, or in business complexes. These rides enable children between the ages of 3 and 13 to ride their bikes and solicit sponsors to donate money to cancer research. 100% of all money raised at this event and by the children will go directly to Dana Farber via the PMC. Last year the PMC raised over $45 million dollars for Dana Farber. Make the commitment to join us because you want to help cure 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 cancer. The Acton Boxboro Maynard PMC Kids Ride will bring us "closer by the mile" to a cure!
We look forward to seeing you at the ride and thank you for your support!
