WELCOME TO the 6th annual PMC KIDS RIDE - EASTON!

And THANK YOU for all you do to help to bring us closer to finding cures for all cancers by raising funds for research and treatment.

All riders, volunteers, schools, and town supporters and community sponsors are essential to the success of the PMC Kids Ride! In 2018, our community, 350+ riders and 100+ volunteers and supporters raised $57,000! A gift of hope! With your help, we will meet Easton PMC Kids Ride’s 2019 goal of raising $60,000 to benefit the work of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund - 100% of rider-raised dollars benefit research, treatment & care for children and families impacted by cancer.  See attached flyer for all 2019 EASTON PMC KIDS RIDE event details.
