WBZ-TV’s Lisa Hughes and David Wade ride the PMC.
WBZ-TV is proud to support The Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC), the single largest athletic fundraising event in the country. Over the last 35 years, PMC cyclists have raised more than $450 million for patient care and cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. On August 1 & 2, 2015, the Pan-Mass Challenge aims to raise an additional $45 million, bringing the total since 1980 to a half billion dollars, to fight cancer. For more information about the PMC, visit PMC.org.
On August 1 & 2, 2015, more than 5,700 riders will take part in the 36th Pan-Mass Challenge.
In addition the full 46-town, 192-mile ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown, there are eleven other routes of varying distances. There are five additional two-day ride routes, and six one-day routes, starting as short as 25 miles. Learn more about the routes, and the different levels of fundraising, on the PMC website.
This year’s two day rides are Saturday and Sunday, August 1st and 2nd, with Opening Ceremonies being broadcast live on WBZ-TV Friday night, July 31st from Sturbridge. One-day ride options are available on Saturday or Sunday.
Last year, 5,500 cyclists traveled from 36 states and eight countries to ride in the Pan-Mass Challenge.
The PMC donates 100% of every rider-raised dollar to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund. In addition the PMC has over 3,300 volunteers and 200+ corporate sponsors.
