Pan-Mass Challenge

Personal Contribution To Team Fund Raising Goal
$5,000 USD

PMC Brief History
Established by Billy Starr in 1980 and under his direction, the PMC has grown considerably and consistently from its modest beginnings into an event that draws 6,000 cyclists from 41 states and eight countries. Today, the Pan-Mass Challenge raises more money than any other athletic fundraising event in the country. The PMC generates more than 50% of the Jimmy Fund's annual revenue and it is Dana-Farber's single largest contributor. Over the past 37 years, PMC cyclists have ridden to raise and contribute $547 million to cancer research.

The now nationally recognized PMC is a tribute to Starr's unending desire to achieve, make a difference, and raise money for cancer research. It is also a model for all athletic fundraising events, setting the pace for a now $5 billion industry.

PMC cyclists have ridden to raise and contribute $547 million to cancer research.

Wow! That is a lot of money raised to help people fighting cancer. God bless all ya cyclists!


Yeah it is definitely a awesome and powerful number! The community of riders / charity cyclists in general are just amazing people and the whole event is a lot of fun. Plus a very high percentage of the money goes directly to people who need it , which is even more awesomeness!


I would love to participate if I was in the USA. Unfortunately, I am not. I wish you all the best. Kudos to your team.



Great post, thanks for sharing!

Awesome achievement @blueorgy. If I'd have done that much biking I think I would have ended up with a nice looking chart too, but it would likely have been on a heart-rate monitor in the Emergency Room.


Hahaha 😂 made me laugh out loud with the heart rate sending you to the Emergency Room! 7 Thank you it was a hard ride and I didn't do as well as planned but I'll take it!

Doing big things, proud and respected!

Upvoted! I come from a community of charitable people. It's great to see people in this world standing up for great causes!

That's fantastic. The money raised is for a good cause, so keep up the good work
