Pan-Mass Challenge Kids Rides

Young bikers enthusiastically pedaled to raise money for cancer research last year.

Pan-Massachusetts Challenge (PMC) Kids Rides need tots, teens and in-betweens to get on the bike to raise money for cancer research and treatment.

More than 35 PMC Kids Rides will be held this spring, summer and fall 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 cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its 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.
