Pan-Mass Challenge

In April, Richard Berkowitz of Miami turned 60. Alan Starr of Newton turns 60 this month. In November, Judy Adler of Maimi Beach will do the same.  To celebrate, they will ride their bikes 600 miles – from Montreal to Provincetown. Their goal is to raise more than $60,000 for cancer research and treatment.  The friends will be joined by other cyclists from Florida and the East Coast who were born in 1951 and thus will turn 60 over the course of this year. They are calling the adventure the Tour de 60.

Pan-Mass Challenge
When 300 or so cancer survivors gather on the lawn at the Mass Maritime Academy after finishing day one of the Pan-Mass Challenge, something magical happens. There's nothing quite like the energy, the excitement and the honor of seeing all of these amazing cancer survivors of all ages, gathered together to celebrate their achievements. The Living Proof photo is a PMC highlight year after year. And this year, we'll have a special champagne toast to honor all of our Living Proof riders at theMassMaritimeAcademyin Bourne.

This weekend, Jack O'Riordan, 15 of Brewster, will leave his post as the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge's most famous fan to become a first-year rider.

Most PMCers are familiar with Jack as the young boy who has been present at the Brewster waterstop for the past 12 years holding a sign that declares his age and gratitude to PMCers for riding to raise money for cancer research and treatment.
