Heavy Hitters

Heavy Hitters are an invaluable asset to the PMC since their fundraising represents more than half of our annual gift to Dana-Farber. 


Cyclists who reach the Heavy Hitter plateau will have the opportunity to register during the Heavy Hitter Registration Period the following year. During this period, the PMC will guarantee the route, Saturday night lodging, and return transportation* of their choice. Heavy Hitters will be invited to the annual Heavy Hitter Evening. They will get recognition in the PMC yearbook, on their registration materials and will receive a Heavy Hitter decal. They will additionally be given a special gift in honor of their exemplary fundraising.

Heavy Hitter teams are listed in the PMC yearbook, which is published at the end of the year and sent to all PMC participants, volunteers, and corporate sponsors. Teams are not required to be Heavy Hitter teams.

A PMC Team will be considered a Heavy Hitter team when the following criteria are met:

  • Heavy Hitter Teams must have at least five members.
  • Heavy Hitter Teams must raise the Heavy Hitter minimum ($8,500 average per rider) as a group. Everyone on the team's fundraising will count towards the total, but will only be divided by the number of Riders (excluding Babson Sunday One-Day and Virtual Riders). For example, a 10-member team, of which 3 are Babson Sunday One-Day Riders, raises $60,000. The calculation would be $60,000 ÷ 7 = $8,571.
  • Each Heavy Hitter team member must submit his or her own fundraising minimum by the fundraising deadline.

*Fast Ferry reservations cannot be guaranteed.
