About The PMC:
Raising $455 million to fight cancer since 1980

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.

The Ride:
12 Routes to fit all skill sets and fundraising abilities

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.
