The Pan-Massachusetts Challenge is a fundraising bike-a-thon started in 1980 that today raises more money than any other athletic fundraising event in the country. Thanks to some generous sponsorships, since 2007 the PMC has been able to donate 100% of every rider-raised dollar directly to cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. People travel from around the world to participate as riders, volunteers, and supporters. Doctors at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute join their patients as teammates, riding for a unified goal. Hundreds of PMC riders are cancer survivors, and thousands more ride in honor of loved ones they have lost to the disease and in support for those fighting it right now.
In the last twenty-nine years, the PMC has contributed more than $239 million to lifesaving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
