Our Team

About The Team

Committed to the Pan-Mass Challenge, PMC team members all have personal reasons for why they PMC. The professional team is made up of 12 full-time and one part-time staff, and is supported by a 14-person Volunteer Head Staff; a 12-person Board of Directors; an 11-person Advisory Board; 6,800 cyclists; 4,000 volunteers; 47 communities; 200 companies, which donate $5 million worth of merchandise and services; and more than 227,000 individuals who support PMC cyclists.

In addition to these roles, most PMC team members – professional and volunteer staff, board members, and advisory board members – are either previous or current PMC riders or volunteers.
