In the fall of 2012, Pat Morris, 59, of Gloucester, Mass. with her husband, Russell's full support, decided to start training for her first Pan-Mass Challenge. They started the adventure with an old mountain bike they shared. Having been diagnosed years prior with toxoplasmosis, an infectious disease caused by a parasite typically transmitted through undercooked meat or soil, Russell often experienced blurred vision and fatigue.

At the age of 78, Winslow Green, of Bolton, Mass., is one of the oldest and most dedicated participants in the Pan-Mass Challenge. As a retired surgeon and cycling enthusiast, Green has ridden in the annual bike-a-thon eight times and consistently achieves PMC Heavy Hitter fundraising status. A Heavy Hitter is a rider who raises $6,900 or more.  For Green, there is nothing like riding a bicycle.
