Welcome to the PMC Franklin Kids Ride!

Scavenger Hunt - November 7th
Please join us to kick off our 10th year by participating in our first annual Scavenger Hunt.  This event will take place on Saturday, November 7th, 2015.  Tickets are $25/person.  Form a team (carload), come up with a team name, and get ready to have some fun. The hunt will start at 4:00pm on the Franklin Commons and end at 7:00pm at the Crystal Room in Milford where we will have a celebration party until 10:00pm.  There will be music, prizes, appetizers and a cash bar.  Contact Lisa Marchioni at to purchase tickets.  

The PMC Kids Ride gives us the opportunity to work together with the Franklin community and make a significant impact in the fight against cancer. We have all been touched in some way with someone who has had cancer. This ride gives children an opportunity to feel that they can make a difference. It empowers kids to become part of the Pan Mass Challenge (PMC) mission of raising money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. This ride also teaches children the value of riding for the benefit of others.
Last year, our ride raised over $43,000 and this year, our goal is $50,000. Please help us reach this goal.

Here are some ways you can help us:
