Every year when the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge yearbook arrives in my mailbox, I am brought back decades (yikes, more than a generation!), to a time when the dead of winter brought the camp yearbook to my door. Upon its glossy pages were photos of my friends in camp T-shirt and shorts, swimming in the lake, and competing in the annual Color War. I wanted it to be instantly summer again so I could return to all of the warmth of both the season and the friends who were my family away from home.
That time is here again! The Pan-Massachusetts Challenge 2010 Yearbooks have hit mailboxes across the country. If you haven't seen it, you can download the full yearbook here.
This sunrise cover photo, shot by PMC photographer John Deputy of MetroDesign, captures the essence of the PMC spirit.
Inside the yearbook, you'll meet amazing PMC riders and volunteers, some of whom have overcome so much, and yet are compelled to give back and raise money year after year.
The Yearbook is the PMC's way of thanking its sponsors, riders, volunteers and contributors for their unending support and commitment to the cause. It's also a beautiful way to showcase the family that we have created together as we pedal to raise money for cancer research.
The PMC yearbook was written by the PMC staff and the PMC publicity team from Teak Media. It was designed by Maria Carbone of DeFrancis Carbone and printed by Kirkwood Printing of Wilmington. We hope you have as much fun reading it as we all did in creating it!
