CHR's charity for July is the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC). The Pan-Mass Challenge raises money for life-saving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute(DFCI) through an annual bike-a-thon that crosses the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
The PMC is a fully supported bike-a-thon with food and water stops, mechanical and medical assistance, luggage transportation, and lodging. Cyclists are required to raise between $500 and $5,000 to ride in the PMC, depending on the chosen route. The PMC is so well-known in cycling and fundraising circles that each year people travel from around the world to participate. Over 300 PMC riders are cancer survivors. The camaraderie shared by riders, volunteers, and supporters is so strong that even the doctors at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute join their patients as teammates, riding toward a unified goal.
CHR encourages you to support this event through active participation or with a donation. To learn more, visit their site http://www.pmc.org.
