Welcome to the 4th Easton PMC Kids Ride

April 29th, 2017

After a successful Easton PMC Kids Ride in 2016 that raised over $38,000 to benefit the Jimmy Fund which included 308 participants from Easton and surrounding towns, Easton prepares to have another successful ride on Saturday, April 29th.  Bag pick up will be on Friday, April 28th at Parkview Elementary from 5-7 pm.

Join us for this exciting event to benefit the Jimmy Fund. These young participants will come together to raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Center as we all work together as a community to find a Cure for CANCER. Students will raise funds toward cancer research and the work of the Jimmy Fund to support families going through cancer. The Easton PMC kids ride is a way for children to become involved in philanthropy and community activities at an early age while learning the valuable lesson of how good it feels to do something that benefits others.

NEW THIS YEAR, WE WILL HAVE A VIRTUAL RIDER CATEGORY FOR YOUNG RIDERS WHO WOULD STILL LIKE TO PARTICIPATE BUT CANNOT PHYSICALLY BE AT THE RIDE ON THE 29TH.

Minimum fundraising fee is $25. Registration fee is $10 if registered before April 17th! Any rider who registers between April 17-24th, registration fee will be increased to $20. After April 24th, registration will be closed and no walk on registrations will be accepted.
