About The Resolution by PMC
The Resolution by PMC is an indoor cycling event that allows participants to channel physical, mental and emotional energy to fight cancer. As a spoke in the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) wheel, 100 percent of every rider-raised dollar goes directly to cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (Dana-Farber). Founded in 1980, the PMC is an annual bike-a-thon that today raises more money for charity than any other single athletic fundraising event in the country. The PMC has since raised $547 million for adult and pediatric cancer care and research. The Resolution intends to continue the PMC model of efficiency while simultaneously increasing the level of participation. The Resolution by PMC offers athletes another opportunity to commit to the cause and the fight against cancer. In 2017, The Resolution by PMC events are being held in Boston in January and in the San Francisco area in April. For more information on The Resolution by PMC, visit Resolution.PMC.org.
