The mission of PMC Sharon Kids
Ride is to include young cyclists in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge (PMC)
mission of raising money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber
Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. The program engages youth in
philanthropy and teaches them the value of working for the benefit of others.
The ride also promotes athletic fitness and physical activity among youth.
The event will occur rain
or shine - only a thunderstorm will cause a cancellation. See you there!
