PMC Fundraising 101

When you register for the PMC, you are signing up for a fundraising mission first, and a bike ride second. Whether you’re a virtual rider who never gets on a bike or a rider cycling a two-day route on PMC weekend, your commitment contributes to the PMC’s mission of raising funds for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

The core of PMC fundraising


PMC riders’ commitment to fundraising is at the heart of PMC culture. When riders register each year, they commit to a fundraising minimum, 100 percent of which goes to cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Cancer Institute?

17 million

Cancer Survivors

When the PMC started in 1980, there were fewer than five million cancer survivors in the world. Today, there are more than 17 million, a result of the advancements in treatment and research – many of which were developed at Dana-Farber and are made possible by the tremendous efforts of tens of thousands of everyday people who fundraise in events like the PMC each year.


Impact at DFCI

Since its founding in 1947, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts has been committed to providing adults and children with the best cancer  treatment available today while developing tomorrow's cures through cutting-edge research.

The PMC has raised $767 million for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute since it's launch in 1980. Today, the PMC is the single largest contributor to Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund and is responsible for 64 percent of the Jimmy Fund’s annual revenue.
