Also during the event, a high-stakes corn hole tournament will take place.

About Team Boston Fire

Team Boston Fire is a collection of athletes, military veterans and cancer survivors, and the Boston Fire Department’s official Pan-Mass Challenge Team.

After a successful inaugural team ride in 2017, the Boston Fire Department and the Local 718 returns for their third Pan-Mass Challenge. Team Boston Fire, a collection of athletes, military veterans and cancer survivors, ride in honor and support of our brothers and sisters who’ve faced, and continue to fight, an all-too-familiar battle with cancer.

Every three weeks a Boston firefighter is diagnosed with cancer, a staggering statistic that ranks 2.5 times the average rate of other Boston populations. Annually, an average of 20 Boston Firefighters develop cancer. Since 1990, nearly 200 Boston firefighters have been lost to occupational cancer.

Why do we ride? We ride for our brave friends, families and co-workers who’ve been in some way affected by this devastating disease. We ride for better care and state-of-the-art research. We ride to raise awareness and to give a fighting chance to an at-risk occupation with a frighteningly high rate of affected individuals. We ride because the PMC is the single most successful charity in the battle against cancer, and the Boston Fire Department is among the leading occupations affected by it.
