The Pan-Mass Challenge
WBZ-TV is proud to support The Pan-Mass Challenge, the single largest athletic fundraising event in the country. Over the last 34 years, PMC cyclists have raised more than $400 million for patient care and cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. On August 2 & 3, 2014, the Pan-Mass Challenge aims to raise an additional $40 million to fight cancer. For more information about the PMC, visit PMC.org.
On August 2 & 3, 2014, more than 5,500 riders will take part in the 35th 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 2nd and 3rd, with Opening Ceremonies Friday night in 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 the Jimmy Fund, in support of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Thousands of volunteers help make it all happen.
