Pedal Partner:

The Pedal Partner program is a wonderful way for riders to connect with a child who has been affected by cancer. Our Pedal Partner is truly the face of our Ride. 

Our newest Pedal Partner is Julian from Quincy:

Julian is a 2.5 year old from Quincy, Massachusetts. He loves puppies, M&Ms, playing with his older brother Eli and playing with cars and trucks. In November of 2014, just after his first birthday, Julian was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, pediatric liver cancer. After an attempted tumor resection and 8 rounds of chemotherapy, he was listed for a liver transplant, which he received in May 2015. He finished his cancer treatments in July 2015, and although he will always receive follow-up for his transplant, he is doing well. He is now able to be an active and happy toddler who enjoys life to the fullest!


Some of our other Pedal Partners are:

Poppy from Marshfield: 

Poppy is a sweet, engaging four-year-old with a fantastic sense of humor! She lives in Marshfield with her dad, mom, little sister Hazel, and her dog Penny. Poppy was diagnosed with retinoblastoma (a tumor on her retina) at the age of 4 months. With the timely diagnosis and treatment, Poppy was considered to be in remission before her first birthday. She continues to see her opthalmologist, Dr. Ankoor Shah, every six months for an exam under anesthesia to ensure that there isn't any tumor regrowth. Throughout all of her treatments and followup exams, Poppy has never lost her happy-go-lucky disposition! With each subsequent office exam, Poppy's vision continues to improve.




Sophia from Quincy:

Sophia is 9 years old and lives in Quincy, MA.  She lives with her mom, dad, and her 5-year-old sister Zoe.  Sophia is in the fourth grade at Beechwood Elementary School in Quincy.  She loves school and her favorite subject is math.  Sophia works very hard in school and hasn't allowed treatment to interfere with her love and success in school.  During her free time, Sophia loves to dance.  She dances for Velocity Dance Company in Quincy, and is part of the Glitter team.  She does ballet, tap and jazz, with jazz being her favorite.  Although she is not currently able to participate in dance, she still attends all her classes to watch her group and video the dances in the hopes that she will be ready if she is able to dance in the recital.  In December 2014, Sophia was diagnosed with LCH, a rare disease involving clonal proliferation of Langerhans cells, abnormal cells deriving from bone marrow, which manifested in a bone lesion on her C2 vertebrae.  She began chemotherapy in January 2015 and wore a halo, and now a hard collar, to limit mobility in her neck.  Sophia, however is tolerating treatment very well, and maintains a positive and resilient attitude.  She looks forward to her treatments ending and being able to enjoy all of the activities she loved before her diagnosis.  


Elena from Whitman:

Elena is a happy, healthy and active seven year old girl in first grade.  She loves swimming, soccer and being Girl Scout.  On July 1, 2011 when she was two years old, Elena was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).  She was inpatient at Children’s Hospital for 45 days and then received treatment at the Jimmy Fund Clinic until August 9, 2013, when she had her last dose of chemo! 

Elena was a Pedal Partner for Team Perini in 2012 and 2013 and it was through this program that she was introduced to the PMC Kids Rides.  Elena has been riding in the South Shore PMC Kids Ride since 2013 and has been able to raise $9085.67 through the generosity and support of friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.
