Pan-Mass Challenge

Closer By The Mile
The Pan-Mass Challenge, presented by the Boston Red Sox Foundation and New Balance, is the nation's original fundraising bike-a-thon, and today raises more money for charity than any other athletic fundraising event in the country. A model of fundraising efficiency, since 2007 the PMC has donated 100% of every rider-raised dollar directly to cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI).

The PMC is so well-known in cycling and fundraising circles, that each year people travel from around the world to participate. Thousands of riders and volunteers have lost loved ones to the disease, still more ride in honor of those in treatment, and over 800 PMC riders and volunteers are cancer survivors. The camaraderie shared by riders, volunteers, and supporters is so strong that even the doctors at DFCI join their patients as teammates, riding toward a unified goal.

The PMC's programs - PMC Winter Cycle and PMC Kids Rides are "spokes in the wheel" of the PMC's annual fundraising campaign. The PMC Winter Cycle is a spin event held at Fenway Park on January 26, 2019. The PMC Kids Rides program holds mini bike-a-thons for kids ages 2-15 across New England and New York. Like the PMC, 100% of all rider-raised dollars goes directly to DFCI.

Since its 1980 inception, the PMC has contributed $654 million to lifesaving cancer research and treatment at DFCI.

The 2019 PMC
On August 3 & 4, 2019, 6,000+ cyclists will ride one of 12 routes, logging between 25 and 192 miles over one or two days, through 46 Massachusetts cities and towns. Their collective goal is to continue to grow the organization's 40-year fundraising total for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The PMC's 2018 gift to Dana-Farber is $56 million.

The Organization
The PMC is a model of efficiency for all non-profit events. The professional team is made up of nine full time and 1 part time staff; a 10-person volunteer coordinating staff; a 14-person Board of Trustees; 6,000+ cyclists; 4,000 volunteers; 46 communities; 200 companies, which donate $4 million worth of merchandise and services; and more than 250,000 individuals who sponsor PMC cyclists.
