Sam Mahler knows the PMC well. He's been a Pedal Partner and rides in the PMC Kids Rides. His dad, Mike, has been a rider and Heavy Hitter for nine years. His mom, Renee, is a PMC volunteer massage therapist. And his older sister Ilana is also PMC volunteer.
It was Sam and his battle with cancer that prompted his family to make the PMC their cause.
But this year is different. At 13, Sam is old enough to compete in the "big" ride on PMC weekend. Sam is this year's youngest cancer survivor riding in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge.
