Welcome to the Uxbridge PMC Kids Ride!

Uxbridge High School Student Council is proud to announce our second kids PMC ride! We are very excited to say that kids from all around the town of Uxbridge are coming together to help out and donate to find a cure against cancer! Please help us reach our $7,500 fundraising goal! Join the fun and help put a stop to cancer!

Pan Mass Challenge events have an unwavering commitment to finding a cure for cancer. Since its start in 1980, the PMC has raised $414,000,000.00 for cancer research and cancer care. Although each individual rider has a personal reason for taking part in the event, they are strongly united in their cause...cure cancer. The money raised from the PMC and PMC Kids rides accounts for over half of the total funding for the Jimmy Fund each year. On September 20th, kids in Uxbridge and surrounding towns will join this established tradition of bike riding and fundraising for Dana Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund. 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. The Uxbridge PMC Kids Ride will bring us "closer by the mile" to a cure!

FUNDRAISING:

A lot goes in to the Kids Ride program so we can work together to raise funds for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in support of cancer research and cures and the best treatments for cancer patients. To help us reach this goal, a minimum fundraising amount of $25 per rider is required. We suggest a fundraising amount of $40 per rider, but most kids raise a lot more than that! In fact, riders who raise $250 are considerHEAVY HITTERS and receive a Heavy Hitter Sack Pack. Raise $700 and more, you are a BREAKAWAY FUNDRAISER and receive a special backpack! There are lots of ways to fundraise, check out these ideas and download your pledge form here to get started!

Tiger Tykes: Little riders and those on more than 2 wheels will ride around a supervised route in the McCloskey parking lot
