I started riding in the PMC ten years ago to get fit and keep a friend company. When you ride in the PMC once, you realize it’s far bigger than just you: everyone there, the riders, the volunteers, the people and whole towns lining the streets, the inspiring stories of the fights of survivors and the drumbeat of the names of those who’ve passed.

A quarter of a century is how long Bill Snapper, 53, of Holliston, Mass. has been riding in and raising money for the Pan-Mass Challenge. He first achieved Heavy Hitter status in 1998 and has since continued to be a top fundraiser for the annual bike-a-thon, to date raising nearly $163,900 for the cause.
