Welcome to the PMC Franklin Kids Ride!

Our Mission:

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.

This year, we will be holding a Scavenger Hunt for adults on Saturday, April 28th from 4pm-10pm.  The scavenger hunt will be from 4-7, while the after party will be held from 7-10pm at the Adirondack Club where we will have music, dinner, cash bar and silent auction.  Tickets are $45 per person.  Form a team, fill a car, follow clues, search for items, take pictures and have fun with your friends.  Please contact Lisa to purchase tickets.  
Last year, our ride raised over $53,000 and this year, our goal is $55,000. Please help us reach this goal.

Here are some ways you can help us:

1. Make a Direct Donation

Riders can choose 1 of four routes:

  • 3 Miles
  • 6Miles - challenging
  • 10 Miles - more challenging with 2 hills
The riders will set off on the back roads of Franklin in groups of 10. Each group is supervised with 2 group leaders (one in the front of the pack and one in the back). So create a team, think of a name and ride with your friends.
