Pan-Mass Challenge

This Saturday's 4 p.m. Red Sox vs. LA Dodgers game at Fenway Park will start off differently than any other game this year. As the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge's presenting sponsor for the seventh year, the Red Sox will honor 31 cancer survivors and Pan-Mass Challenge cyclists for the 31st Pan-Massachusetts Challenge.

PMCer Bonnie Pohlig sent over this wonderful note: 
I wanted to share something that happened this AM. I was at Children's Hospital in Waltham with my daughter for a routine visit. When we returned to our car, there was a note on the door: "I saw your PMC magnet [decal on the back of the car] -- as the parent of a child who benefited from $ raised during the PMC -- THANK YOU!! My son will be in remission 2 years on 8/12." I just had to share. I tear up every time I read it!

Sometimes people are part of the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge without actually participating in PMC weekend. Meet Virtual Rider Ellen Martyn of Brattleboro, Vermont. Two years ago, Ellen Martyn rode her bike across the country with WomanTours, a women's cycling organization that encourage bike riding for a cause.  It was a goal of Ellen's to bike cross country, and in the summer of 2008 she completed the 3,064 mile trip. For the 52-year-old kindergarten teacher in Vermont it was an extraordinary accomplishment.
