Originally from Wellington fellow NZer Simon Brandon will saddle up to ride the Pan Mass Challenge in the first week of August. Simon and 6500 fellow cyclists will ride to raise money for life-saving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI). His ride takes him from the border of NY state across Massachusetts, finishing at Provincetown; a total of 300 miles in 3 days.
The PMC donates 100 percent of the money raised to Dana-Farber, and since 1980 more than half-billion dollars has been raised for adult and pediatric cancer care and research. In 2016, the PMC gave a record gift of $47 million and was honored as Program of the Year by the Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum. In 2017, the PMC aims to raise $48 million to support patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber. If accomplished, this fundraising goal will bring the PMC’s 38-year contribution to Dana-Farber to more than $595 million.
NOTE: – Simon has made a personal commitment to ride and raise $4,800, a significant goal, and he needs your help to get there! Upon request he will be riding with the names of your loved ones or friends affected by cancer on the back of his riding jersey all the way across the state of Massachusetts. – PMC donations are tax deductible and 100% will go to Dana Farber Cancer Institute. If your company has a corporate match program then please consider doubling the power of your donation! Please donate to the ride by clicking on this link – https://egifts.pmc.org/SB0385
