PMC Kids Rides will be coming to Concord at the picturesque Middlesex School in June 2015. After 6 years of the Concord ride, we are taking a year off in 2014. The Middlesex School is making improvements to the campus that will offer us an even more magnificent place to continue our event in 2015.
We encourage all interested riders and volunteers to participate in one of the many other PMC Kids Rides and raise money for the fight against cancer. Check out our neighboring rides, Acton-Boxboro and Bedford for more information.
You can still make a donation to the PMC Concord Kids Ride with 100% of the donation going directly to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institutes Jimmy Fund.

Kids ages 5 to 15 are invited to ride either a 1,5,10, or 15 mile route to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Jimmy Fund while their families cheer them on and enjoy the event. For safety, all PMC Kids riders must be off training wheels and there is a minimum 16 inch wheel size (to the tire edge) for the 1,5,10 & 15 mile rides. There will be a separate 1/4-1/2 mile PMC Kid Jr. Ride for riders with training wheels and those under 5. To participate in the PMC Kids Jr. Ride, follow the same registration process. All registered riders will receive a PMC Kids t-shirt and water bottle. There are no pets allowed at this event.

The mission of PMC Concord Kids Ride is to include young cyclists in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge (PMC) mission of raising money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. The program engages youth in philanthropy and teaches them the value of working for the benefit of others. The ride also promotes athletic fitness and physical activity among youth.
