Expand your PMC experience
The PMC Pedal Partner Program is an inspiring way for PMC cyclists to connect with pediatric oncology patients of the Jimmy Fund Clinic — the very children who receive more advanced treatments and state-of-the-art care as a result of the funds raised by the PMC.
Through this program, registered PMC teams and riders are matched up with and ride in honor of Jimmy Fund Clinic patients, whom we affectionately refer to as our "Pedal Partners". PMC cyclists report increased motivation for training as their relationships with their PMC Pedal Partners build. For the Jimmy Fund Clinic patients, the Pedal Partner Program offers an exciting distraction from their treatments, while introducing them to new friends. Photographs of PMC Pedal Partners are proudly placed along the bike routes for riders and spectators to see during event weekend. The team or rider and their PMC Pedal Partner have the opportunity to meet at the Pedal Partner waterstop during the ride where many Pedal Partners and their families wait to greet those riding in their honor.

Many families of children living with cancer need not only research dollars and medical treatment, but also tools to help them cope. Courageous Parents Network (CPN) provides those tools and other support through expert guidance and parent-to-parent videos and blogs about the issues that families face.
