Celebrating 20 years of riding the Pan-Mass Challenge!

On August 3th and 4th 2024, I will be cycling in my 20th Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, a two day, 192 mile bicycle ride to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

2021 Bourne Finish – Where’s the beer?!

I am riding the “original” PMC route: Sturbridge to Bourne on Saturday, Bourne to Provincetown on Sunday.

Myself and over 6,000 cyclists will be riding with a goal to raise over $70 million dollars — 100% of which is donated to the Jimmy Fund, a fundraising arm of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

The Pan-Mass Challenge exists because we– the riders, the volunteers, the supporters– want to live in a world without cancer. Until we can have that, we want to support the groundbreaking research championed by the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Cancer is an extremely complicated beast, and we don’t have cures for many types of cancer — yet.

This is my 12th year riding with the Patriots Platelet Pedalers team. The funds raised by myself and my team are earmarked for Dr. Ken Anderson, the Kraft Family Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, to support his multiple myeloma research and development of novel therapies.

My personal goal this year is to raise $9,500, and I need your help to get there.  Every cent you donate — 100% — will go to the Jimmy Fund. Thanks to your generous support, I’ve raised over $117,000 over the last nineteen years.

Thank you so much for your support!
