Welcome riders, volunteers, and virtual riders to PMC 2020 Reimagined! Think of this page as your "Virtual Handbook" for getting the most out of your PMC experience this year. And whether you participate in one activity, all of them, or something in between, remember that we're all part of the same PMC community, even if physically distant in 2020. Enjoy!

Riders and volunteers, find the "Why I PMC" sign in your PMC 2020 mailing and be part of the 2020 "Why I PMC" video!
We each ride, volunteer and fundraise for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for our own personal reasons – this is your opportunity to share why you PMC.
The deadline to participate in this video project was August 2.

We want to see how teams will reimagine their 2020 PMC Team Photos! Team captains, gather your team whether it be virtually on Zoom or in a safe social distance photo*, put on your 2020 team jersey, and take a picture!
Make sure that you are only submitting new 2020 photos as we want to highlight all of our 2020 teams through social media, our PMC 2020 Reimagined social stream, our photo gallery and annual yearbook.
The deadline to submit a team photo was August 2 at 12 PM.
*Please keep in mind Centers for Disease Control social distancing guidelines (e.g., maintaining 6-foot separation, wearing a face covering) if you are taking your team picture in person. The PMC is not able to use photos where riders are not following these guidelines.
