Not a biker? Be a PMC Volunteer

There are many of us who consider ourselves PMCers, even though we don't ride.


Thankfully, the PMC recognizes that some of us don't do so well on two wheels and offers different ways we can get involved and support the cause.


PMC Volunteers are crucial for making the ride – from long before it starts to well after it ends – a success.


In 2008, there were 2,892 volunteers at PMC weekend. That's more than 1 volunteer for every 2 riders.


PMC volunteers are among the reasons that the PMC donates 100 percent of every rider-raised dollar directly to cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.


Volunteers do it all. They get riders' luggage to where it needs to be. They fix flat tires. They make thousands of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. They help cyclists along the route.


They even pick up trash at water stops and hub sites.


And during PMC weekend, the volunteers have a pretty great time doing it!


Now is the time to become a volunteer for the 30th Annual Pan-Massachusetts Challenge this August.


Alumni volunteers can register Tuesday, March 3. Newcomers who want to volunteer can sign up beginning Tuesday, March 17. Register here. Here's the scoop on the many PMC volunteer opportunities.


And, if you want to volunteer AND raise money for the Jimmy Fund, join the one-day volunteer ride (Volunteer on Saturday and ride from Bourne to Wellesley) or become a virtual rider.
