Pan-Massachusetts Challenge (PMC) Kids Rides need tots, teens, and in-betweens to spin their wheels and raise money for cancer research and treatment.

In 2012, 33 PMC Kids Rides attracted more than 4,400 young cyclists, 2,300 volunteers and 4,000 parents, raising $829,000 for the PMC, according to a press release.

This spring, summer, and fall, 38 PMC Kids Rides will be held throughout New England and beyond, offering a way for children to become a part of the PMC mission.

The rides range from loops around the block to a 26-mile route. Post-ride parties feature DJs, refreshments, face painting, and silent auctions.

Proceeds from the PMC Kids Rides will benefit the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, which supports adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund.

PMC Kids Rides involve young people in volunteerism and fundraising in a safe and athletic way. Contributions can be made payable to the Pan-Mass Challenge.

To register, visit http://kids.pmc.org. For more information, call 800-WE-CYCLE.
