2015 Pan Mass challenge bike ride is coming up fast.On the first weekend in August my bike and I will join 5000
other riders and traverse Massachusetts from Sturbridge to Provincetown.We will stop traffic on Route 6 in
Eastham, take over a lane on the Bourne Bridge, listen to the cheers of
countless spectators, cow bells ringing and bagpipes playing and eat enough
fluffernutters to last another year.
This will be my 8th year riding and every
year brings out one or more PMC moments.These things happen, and along with the names on my jersey, reinforce
why I ride.It is something I
hear, someone I see, someone who rides by me or someone with a story.I have many different options
each year but there is usually one moment that sticks out.Last year it happened as I came up
behind a rider and noticed his pink tires, pink handlebar tape, pink water
bottle cages and pink pedal cleats.We struck up a conversation and he told me about his pink items.He had ridden the PMC for many years
and one year met his future wife.They rode together for several years before they got married right
before a PMC weekend.That year
they rode a tandem bike while he wore a jersey that looked like a tuxedo and
she wore a veil on her helmet.The
PMC was special to them.Several
years later she developed breast cancer and it ultimately took her life.He rides with all the pink items in her
honor on their special weekend.It
was very touching to hear him tell his story.
PMC is my way to help all those out there affected by cancer.The PMC is the single largest
contributor to the Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.Dana-Farber is one of the leading
hospitals in the country for cancer research and treatment.
in the last 7 years you and I have raised nearly $48,000.In order to participate again, I must
raise at least another $4500.As
always, ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the money we raise together goes directly to the
Jimmy Fund.The PMC goal is to
raise $45,000,000 this year.I
hope you can help me with this project.Any size contribution will be greatly appreciated.
I ride with a picture of my parents on my
jersey.Both passed away from
cancer and I dedicate my ride to them.You can dedicate your donation to someone you know that has been
affected by cancer.Contact me and
I would love to add their name(s) to my jersey as a survivor or in memoriam.
