Introducing The Resolution by PMC

Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) launched registration for the organization’s first-ever indoor bike-a-thon to fight cancer, The Resolution by PMC. On January 2 and 3, 2016, 2,000 participants will usher in the new year by resolving to find a cure for cancer at The Club by George Foreman III. To join in the fight against cancer, riders can register HERE.

“We are thrilled to launch The Resolution by PMC and introduce the camaraderie and culture of commitment of the organization to a new group of cycling enthusiasts,” said Billy Starr, founder and executive director of the PMC. “Those who participate in The Resolution will begin the year by joining in an effort much larger than themselves. In return, they will kick off the New Year with new friends and feeling empowered.” 

“We are ecstatic to be hosting The Resolution by PMC as we are truly at home with the PMC’s mission to ‘fight it forward’ through fitness, fundraising and a cycling commitment that will push each rider’s mental, physical and spiritual prowess,” said George Foreman III, founder of The Club by George Foreman III.   

Teams and individual cyclists from the Greater Boston-area and beyond will come together over two days with the collective goal of raising $1 million to support adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Many participants will ride in honor of a family member or friend lost to, or being treated for, cancer, as 100 percent of every rider raised dollar goes directly to Dana-Farber. All participants are committed to raising at least $250 for cause. The Resolution by PMC is sponsored by The Club by George Foreman III, New Hit Country 102.5 WKLB, and WBZ-TV. Award-winning, local graphic design firm, Spin350 Creative, crafted the look and feel of The Resolution by PMC branding.  

“We are excited to join forces with our unparalleled partner, the PMC, for their first indoor cycling event,” said Edward J. Benz, Jr., MD, president and chief executive officer, Dana-Farber. “More riders mean more opportunities to invest in life-saving breakthroughs in cancer research, from genomics and immunotherapy to chemistry and patient care. We are deeply grateful for the PMC’s commitment to our work as we bond together to change the face of cancer care for generations to come.”

"I am proud to see The Resolution by PMC taking place in my district,” said Bill Linehan, Boston City Council President. “It is going to be a great event using physical and mental strength to raise funds and spread awareness about such an important cause." 

The Resolution by PMC will be held on Saturday, January 2 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, January 3 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at The Club by George Foreman III in Boston’s innovation district, Fort Point.
