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.

Amy Bresky, 61, who splits her time between West Newbury, Mass. and Southern Pines, N.C., has helped the PMC for more than half her life. She was the annual bike-a-thon’s first volunteer and continues to volunteer….35 years later.

It’s midnight on a Saturday; do you know where your mother is? 

If it’s the first weekend in August, she might be having her annual “Ladies Night Out,” except this crew won’t be home until the next morning. These party moms are busy making breakfast at Mass Maritime Academy for thousands of cyclists taking on day two in the Pan-Mass Challenge. Working the late shift – or early shift, depending on how you look at it – they start at midnight and finish at 8 a.m.

Volunteers are needed for the PMC on August 2, 3, and 4th at all hub sites and water stops across Massachusetts. Help is needed with registration, site logistics, food preparation, bike parking, cleanup, etc.

It takes riders, partners, sponsors and doers
