I am pleased to announce that, for our 36th year, we have set our sights on raising a total of $500,000,000 since 1980! That's right - our goal for this year is $45 million! That is not too tall an order for this group nor is it a "lay-up" either.
Each day, hundreds of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute patients, family members, and staff walk across the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) Bridge to Progress. Though the distance they travel is significantly shorter than the 192 miles biked by riders each year during PMC weekend, their goal is the same: to conquer cancer.
The Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) today announced a three-year partnership with 105.7 WROR-FM to serve as the official radio station of the bike-a-thon event that has raised $455 million for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI).
For those attending the SOLD OUT PMC Check Presentation Gala being held at America's Most Beloved Ballpark, Fenway Park, on November 8, 2014; along with the announcement of the gift to Dana-Farber Cancer Institue, a tremendous venue, delicious food by celebrity chefs Jody Adams and Ming Tsai you are in for quite a treat when it comes to the music for the night!
This summer, Rebecca Green, 28, of Newton, Mass., went beyond the extra mile in support of the Pan-Mass Challenge. Rather, she went more than 3,600 miles in addition to the 190 miles she pedaled alongside her father, Warren Green, in the 35th event.
On Saturday, Nov. 8, hundreds of PMC riders, volunteers and supporters donning creative black tie apparel will converge around, in and on the field under a clear topped tent at America’s Most Beloved Ballpark, Fenway Park to celebrate the 35th Pan-Mass Challenge at the PMC Check Presentation Gala produced by Rafanelli Events.
