Welcome to the Pembroke PMC Kids Ride
It's that time of year! The third annual Pembroke PMC KIDS Ride is being planned; and will take place on June 11, 2017 from 8:30 – 11:00AM at Pembroke HS and we are hoping to have 200+ kids of all ages participating in this event. Last year was another great success; and folks like you helped make it a HUGE success with 150+ riders raising over $15,000! Help us surpass last year's success by signing up today as a rider or volunteer!
PMC KIDS Rides became an official PMC program in 2005 as a way to include young cyclists in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenges’ mission of raising money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. Since then, the rides have raised over 6.9 million dollars. The program engages youth in philanthropy, instills the value of working for the benefit of others, and promotes athletic fitness and physical activity. The PMC KIDS Rides Program offers children, parents, and neighbors an opportunity to work together to create individual bike-a-thons in neighborhoods, at schools, or in business complexes. These rides enable children between the ages of 3 and 13 to ride their bikes and solicit sponsors to donate money to cancer research. 100% of all money raised at this event and by the children will go directly to Dana Farber via the PMC. Last year the PMC raised over $45 million dollars for Dana Farber. Make the commitment to join us because you want to help cure cancer! This ride is dedicated to all of our loved ones whose lives were cut short by cancer and to those who continue to inspire us as they live with cancer.
Preregistration is required and all participants must be registered by June 4th, 2016.
There will be 3 routes to choose:
Junior riders- A contained course in the rear of High School. This loop is for children on big wheels, tricycles or bicycles with training wheels. Children are accompanied by their parent/guardian as they loop the course
Big Kid Loop- Older students on 2 wheels. This is a 3.2 mile ride that takes riders down Learning Lane, left on Hobomock, left on Standish, right on Forest, right on Valley, right on Plain, right on Lake (which turns in) to Hobomock and right onto Learning Lane.
Advanced Loop- For older, more advanced riders, who will follow the same route as the big kid loop, but instead of continuing onto Hobomock (where Lake, Hobomock and Standish come together), riders will turn right onto Standish and complete the same loop again. This will add an additional 2 miles.
At the conclusion of the ride, there will be a Festival in the lower High School parking lot. We will have fun snacks for kids, jumpy houses, music and much more.
