PMC Kids Riders will be coming to Sharon for the fifth time at East Elementary School. Kids ages 9 to 16 are invited to ride either a 3, 6 or 10 mile route to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Jimmy Fund while their families cheer them on and enjoy the event. There will be a separate PMC Kids Jr. Ride for riders under the age of 9. To participate in the PMC Kids Jr. Ride, follow the same registration process. All registered riders will receive a PMC Kids t-shirt and water bottle. Over the past four years we raised over $100,000 and this year hope to raise more than $30,000.


All registration must be done online by Saturday, June 18th. To register just follow the link on the right side of the page.


With your help, we look forward to making a significant contribution in 2016. Go to fundraising tips to learn more about what you can do to raise money for the fight against cancer.

Throughout the day there will be music and activities including face painting, drawing, tattoos and field games. After the ride there will be a party with refreshments, music, and a rider fundraising recognition ceremony.

Sponsorship opportunities are also encouraged at four levels: Cruiser ($100), Mountain ($250), Road ($500) and Racing ($1,000). All sponsors will be listed in the Sharon event program and sponsorships over $2,500 will be listed in the PMC yearbook. To sponsor the event, go to eGifts and enter the amount under general donation.


Heavy Hitters/Breakaway Fundraisers 


Each motivated rider who raises $250 or more will be honored as a PMC Kids Heavy Hitter and those who raise $750 or more will be honored as a PMC Kids Breakaway Fundraiser. These riders will be recognized with a special New Balance PMC Kids Rides branded item and a certificate.




Too old or can't ride? We could use as many volunteers as possible! Adults and teens 14+: to register to volunteer go to the right side of the page and click on register to volunteer. All Volunteers will receive a PMC t-shirt.




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!
