Pan-Mass Challenge

This summer, Mike Cesarini, 36, of Duxbury, will be riding in his third Pan-Massachusetts Challenge. Cesarini is a Brockton Police Officer, a father of two daughters who are 8 and 10 years old, and the loving husband of a woman who has terminal cancer.

When 16-year-old Zachary Temple wanted to join his father on a two-day, 190-mile bike ride with more than 5,000 participants, his mother was understandably apprehensive.

However, having a teenage boy show interest in philanthropy made saying no impossible. Zachary's father, Mark, came up with the perfect solution. They would take on the Pan-Mass Challenge together, on a tandem bicycle.

A Michigan business owner stumbled across a 2008 PMC jersey on ebay last year and bought a couple for herself and her husband to wear while riding their tandem bike. Longtime PMC volunteer David Rabinovitz, who put the extra jerseys up for sale, reached out to the woman to say thanks and find out her connection to the PMC. Rabinovitz and Andrea Funk started emailing and he discovered that Funk was the owner of Too Cool T-Shirts Quilts, a small company that makes quilts out of t-shirts. After talking, Funk offered to make a quilt out of PMC jerseys.
