This year we ride for Dana-Farber
& The Jimmy Fund
, 6000+ cyclists have a goal of collectively raising over 52 million dollars. We've rallied around this cause for many reasons, the reality is 1 out of 2 men and 1 out of 3 women will develop some type of cancer in their life time. We all know someone dear to us who has had cancer, or lost their battle to this dreadful disease. With over 400 types of cancers finding cures, or at least treatments to knock a sub-type of cancer into remission takes a lot of funding, world class doctors, clinical trials, etc.
We know first hand what it is like to be treated and cared for at a world class cancer institution like Dana-Farber. We have also seen many children battling cancer at the Jimmy Fund Center which breaks your heart and warms it at the same time when you see their big smiles and positive energy. PMC's commitment to Dana-Farber (for adults) and The Jimmy Fund (for children) has been making a positive impact on ground breaking cancer care and treatments.This year were proud to announce Hydro-Hitch is donating a percentage of all sales in care of the Pan-Mass Challenge.
Besides our corporate donation Diane and I have joined team "Flames" and have committed to raising funds of our own to support this cause. To view our team, or personal riding profiles and fundraising goals please see the links below.
