WBZ-TV’s Lisa Hughes and David Wade riding the PMC.
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 $654 million for patient care and cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In 2017, the Pan-Mass Challenge raised $51 million to fight cancer, and a record breaking $56 million in 2018. For more information about the PMC, visit PMC.org.
On August 3 & 4, more than 6,300 riders will take part in the 40th Pan-Mass Challenge.
In addition to the full 46-town, 192-mile ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown, there are eleven other routes of varying distances. There are additional two-day ride routes, and 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 3rd and 4th, with Opening Ceremonies on Friday night, August 2nd in 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 900 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 4,000 volunteers and 200+ corporate sponsors.
