I first started riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge in 1997.  I was riding to support one of my best friends and roommate at the time, whose father had died of cancer earlier that year.  I had not ridden a bike in about 10 years and the bike I had was 5 years older than that. I honestly did not know much about the PMC in 1997, but looking back at it, I quickly realized that that the PMC Weekend was about one thing: People!

Each day, hundreds of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute patients, family members, and staff walk across the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) Bridge to Progress.  Though the distance they travel is significantly shorter than the 192 miles biked by riders each year during PMC weekend, their goal is the same: to conquer cancer.

PMC Rider Brings the PMC’s Mission Cross Country

This summer, Rebecca Green, 28, of Newton, Mass., went beyond the extra mile in support of the Pan-Mass Challenge. Rather, she went more than 3,600 miles in addition to the 190 miles she pedaled alongside her father, Warren Green, in the 35th event.

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.
