Welcome to the Needham PMC Kids Ride

Sunday, June 10, 2018


8:15am: Onsite Registration - Tune up tent provided by Landry’s Newton for bike adjustments

9:15am: Opening Ceremonies

9:30am: Route Begins (riders ride for approximately 1 hour)

10:00-12:00am: Post Ride Party: Riders and their families can enjoy refreshments, dancing, music, bouncy houses, raffles, face painting, silent auctions.

**We encourage families to ride/walk to the event as parking will be limited. There will be no parking on Harris.  


Please click "Register to Ride" to sign up and create your fundraising page (register as an individual or a team). There is a $20 registration fee due at this time (all major credit cards are accepted). Every rider receives an official number for their bike, t-shirt and water bottle at check-in.


Harris Route: Continuous Loop beginning at Pollard on Harris to Coolidge, then back down Harris to Bradford. Per the Needham Police, NO training wheels will be allowed on Harris. 

Tot Lot: For our littlest riders on training wheels and tricycles, a ride will be set up in Pollard Parking Lot.


When your child registers online, he or she will get their own personal fundraising page. There is a $30 minimum fundraising amount for each child. 100% of all donations go to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. We hope that many riders will raise more than this! Our goal is to raise as much money as possible while giving children the opportunity to experience charitable giving for a wonderful cause. Riders are encouraged to raise money on their own.

Riders who raise $300 will receive a Heavy Hitter sack pack, and those who raise $800 or more will receive a Breakaway Fundraiser backpack.

We strongly encourage donations to be made online whenever possible. All other cash or check donations (made payable to the PMC) can be brought the day of the ride at check-in. **Please note: minimum must be paid on the day of the ride if your child has not reached the $25 online by then.**


Volunteers wanted! Please come support the return of the PMC Kids Ride to Needham! Volunteers are essential to the success of PMC Kids Ride. Get the whole family involved and support the event by working at registration, the water stop, ride guide, clean-up and more! All volunteers receive a PMC t-shirt.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available and encouraged. We are gratefully accepting individual and corporate donation items (sporting tickets, gift cards, baskets, etc.) to be included in the raffle the day of the ride.

Since 1980, the Pan-Mass Challenge has raised $500 million for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund for cancer care and research. The PMC Kids Ride gives children the opportunity to pick up their own bikes and start pedaling for a cure. 100% of donations go directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute!
