We are very excited to announce Winchester’s 3'rd Annual PMC KIDS Ride to take place on June 17, 2017 from 8:30-11:00 am. Last year's new route was such a success that we will again be riding at Lynch Elementary School and the adjacent neighborhood! Thank you to the neighbors that welcomed us last year and to the WPD and DPW that kept all the riders safe on the roads!
The ride is intended to both raise cancer awareness as well as get Winchester and surrounding communities’ students involved in giving back and being active in the community at an early age. Just like the adult ride, 100% of all rider raised donations will go straight to the Jimmy Fund and used to support cancer research, patient care and families of patients currently involved in treatment. Last year, the PMC Kids rides collectively fundraised $645,255 for the Jimmy Fund/Dana Farber!!!! That is REAL money that will make a REAL impact on the fight against cancer! We are hoping as community that we can build on our previous years' successes and push ourselves to give back even more this year!
On June 17, kids in Winchester & surrounding communities 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 be a part of giving back and you want to help fight 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 or have beaten cancer.
Please note that EACH INDIVIDUAL RIDER is responsible for BOTH their registration fee AND the fundraising minimum, regardless of if they are on a team or ride on their own. We are encouraging more kids to join teams this year and join together to have fun raising money and riding together.
