The most successful athletic fundraising event in the U.S. The PMC has raised $303 million for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. 100 % of every rider raised dollar goes directly to the Jimmy Fund.
The mission of the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge is to raise money for life-saving cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. The catalyst for the fundraising effort is a bike-a-thon that crosses the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Committed cyclists, volunteers, corporate sponsors, and individual financial contributors are essential to the PMC achieving this goal. Since its founding in 1980, the PMC has been increasingly successful in mobilizing the support of all these constituencies. We strive to inspire even more proponents of our cause and intend the money we raise to afford Dana-Farber's doctors and researchers the resources necessary to discover cures for all cancers.
