PMC: Powered by Volunteers

The PMC would not be possible without the thousands of dedicated volunteers who donate their time and energy to support the event during PMC weekend and throughout the  year.

By volunteering for the PMC, you transform your energy, compassion and encouragement into furthering cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Why We PMC

As a survivor and wife of a rider who has the greatest respect and love for everyone involved in the PMC... giving back and being here to do it is the greatest gift!

Many (PMCers) are facing what is probably their greatest challenge, at one of the most difficult times in their lives. Go for it, being kind while doing good and smiling!

Volunteer Ride

Individuals who volunteer PMC weekend are also invited to ride PMC 2023 at a special volunteer fundraising minimum for the Wellesley Century, 25- and 50-mile routes, or as a Reimagined Rider. The fundraising minimums for volunteers riding the 25/50 or Reimagined Ride are $1,000 (reduced from $2,000). The fundraising minimum for volunteers riding the Wellesley Century is $2,500 (reduced from $3,000)  the registration fees remain the same. 

Rider and volunteer registration are now open. Fundraising minimums will be adjusted after an individual registers to volunteer.

The 25- and 50-mile routes start at Babson College in Wellesley on Sunday of PMC weekend and are open to riders ages 13+. The Wellesley Century also starts at Babson College on Sunday and is open to riders ages 15+.

The Reimagined Ride is not a PMC weekend route. Reimagined Riders are able to ride wherever, whenever and however far they so choose, however, they agree they will not ride the PMC routes on PMC weekend (August 5 and 6, 2023).
