BOSTON (CBS) – For the first time in three years, the Pan-Mass Challenge hosted its Heavy Hitter Evening. The event at the InterContinental Boston honored the top PMC fundraisers who contributed to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in 2019, 2020 and 2021.

The PMC also hosted its first Art of the Ride auction. Unique pieces from 31 different artists were donated, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting life-saving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber.
