Pedal Partners

319_PMC_Highlights_2019The PMC Pedal Partner Program pairs pediatric cancer patients (Pedal Partners) at the Jimmy Fund with PMC riders and teams. The program offers an inspiring opportunity for PMC riders to connect with their Pedal Partners who get to be part of the PMC while they are being treated for cancer.

The Lakeville waterstop along the Sturbridge and Wellesley Saturday routes of the PMC is designated as the PMC Pedal Partner waterstop. Posters of the Pedal Partners line the road into the waterstop where the children and their families are waiting to greet and cheer on the PMC riders who are riding in their honor.

The PMC encourages teams to build relationships with the families, though each relationship between the families and teams varies, depending on the level of involvement the teams and families want, the health of the Pedal Partners, and other factors.

How to Participate in the PMC Pedal Partner Program

Children participating in the Pedal Partner Program must be current or recent patients at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund Clinic.

If you are a rider interested in being paired with a Pedal Partner or a parent of a child who would like to be a Pedal Partner, please email Susan Doucet

Every effort is made to match all interested PMC riders and Jimmy Fund patients in the program, but there is a deadline in place so that all Pedal Partners are able to participate in the PMC’s Pedal Partner events, which begin in May.
