2016 PMC Pedal Partner Party

The 2016 PMC Pedal Partner Party by John Hancock took place on Saturday, May 7th at Fenway Park in the State Street Pavilion. Over 600 people, both Pedal Partner families and PMC riders, gathered for this kick-off event where many teams met their Pedal Partner for the first time. There were 75 Pedal Partners in attendance, out of the 115 kids that are part of the program. Activities consisted of face painting, balloon animals, arts and crafts, and green screen photos- what more could you ask for?! Wally stopped by to say hi, as did new Chairman of the Jimmy Fund & President/CEO Emeritus Boston Red Sox Larry Lucchino, PMC Chairman of the Board David Fialkow and PMC Founder & Executive Director Billy Starr. At the end of the event, everyone was able to take a tour of Fenway Park to cap off a wonderful morning.

It was incredibly inspiring seeing everyone come together for these children, who are the heart and soul of the PMC. Knowing that Pedal Partners are directly benefitting from the funds raised by the PMC through developments in research and treatment makes the ride and our event even more personal. Every mile and every dollar brings our Pedal Partners, and countless children like them, closer to a cure. 

Next up for the Pedal Partner program is a reception on Saturday, June 18th prior to PMC Day at Fenway for kids and their families, hosted by John Hancock. On PMC weekend, Pedal Partners will be at the Lakeville water stop, ready to cheer on their teams and riders as they come through!
