of ever rider-raised dollar goes to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
The PMC has raised $972 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 62 percent of the Jimmy Fund’s annual revenue.
Our hope and aspiration is to provide Dana-Farber's doctors and researchers the necessary resources to discover cures for cancer.

This chart shows how Dana-Farber allocated these 2023 funds to bring us closer by the mile. Read more about how these funds are used here.
"We know there is a direct link between riding, fundraising, and the advances in therapy. It's clear we can't do our research, we can't do our studies, we can't fund the laboratory experiments without fundraising and philanthropic dollars. The PMC is the single largest donor to the Dana-Farber. Without PMC money, we wouldn't be able to do half of what we've accomplished."
