The largest annual fundraising event for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston is the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC). During the first weekend of August, I will be riding in the PMC for the seventh consecutive year. With the support of friends, colleagues, and family, we have raised over $67,000 for Dana-Farber. For three years (and hopefully in the future), I rode the PMC with John Berryhill, and together, we have raised more than $88,000 for Dana-Farber.
The most important aspect of the Pan-Mass Challenge is fundraising for Dana-Farber. The PMC typically raises 57% of the annual budget for Dana-Farber’s Jimmy Fund. Since the PMC was founded, it has raised $767 million for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
I know several people, including friends, family, and colleagues, who have bravely fought cancer. Dana-Farber is one of the leading cancer fighting and cancer research organizations in the world.
Because of the Covid pandemic, there will not be an overnight at Mass Maritime Academy this year. Instead of a two-day ride, I will be doing a one day 100-mile century ride. I will either do a 100 mile route around Wellesley, Massachusetts, or I might hop on the ferry and do a “reimagined” ride around Nantucket with a friend. That is TBD.
Daniel Negari from the XYZ Registry has pledged to be the lead sponsor of the domain industry cycling jersey that I will wear on my ride and during training. Domain industry companies that donate $500 before the jersey is finalized will have their logo featured on the back of the jersey. I should be able to share the design in a week or so, and I hope to send it to the jersey company by June 15. Last year’s jersey raised over $10,000 in donations. Email me if you would like to have your logo on the back of my jersey.
Listed below, are this year’s generous donors from within the domain industry (or those who have pledged a contribution). It would be great if I could add your name to the list if you are able to make a donation to Dana-Farber via my PMC fundraiser.
As always, thank you for supporting Dana-Farber via my Pan-Mass Challenge ride.
