WBZ-TV is proud to support The Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC), the single largest athletic fundraising event in the country. Since 1980, PMC cyclists have raised more than $500 million for patient care and cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. On August 6 & 7, 2016, the Pan-Mass Challenge aims to raise an additional $46 million to fight cancer. For more information about the PMC, visit PMC.org.
On August 6 & 7, 2016, more than 5,700 riders will take part in the 37th Pan-Mass Challenge.
In addition the full 46-town, 192-mile ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown, there are thirteen other routes of varying distances. There are three additional two-day ride routes, and seven 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 6th and 7th, with Opening Ceremonies being broadcast live on WBZ-TV Friday night, August 5th from Sturbridge. One-day ride options are available on Saturday or Sunday.
Thousands of riders and volunteers have lost loved ones to the disease, still more ride in honor of those in treatment and over 600 PMC riders and volunteers are cancer survivors. 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.
