The PMC Kids Rides program, presented by Yawkey Foundations, began in 2005 as a way to include young cyclists in the Pan-Mass Challenge mission. The program engages youth in philanthropy and instills the value of working for the benefit of others, while bringing the PMC and its mission to the next generation.

In the fall of 2012, Pat Morris, 59, of Gloucester, Mass. with her husband, Russell's full support, decided to start training for her first Pan-Mass Challenge. They started the adventure with an old mountain bike they shared. Having been diagnosed years prior with toxoplasmosis, an infectious disease caused by a parasite typically transmitted through undercooked meat or soil, Russell often experienced blurred vision and fatigue.

In 1994 and 1995, Shayna Silva, now 29, of Pelham, N.H., watched her father, David, now 58, cross the finish line for the Pan-Mass Challenge. She was in awe of the sea of riders and their commitment to raise money to help fight cancer and was empowered by the energy she felt from spectators and volunteers from the sidelines. David then retired from the event as a cyclist to become a PMC volunteer.
