Pan-Mass Challenge 2015: Support resident’s fundraising for the Jimmy Fund

The 36th annual Pan-Mass Challenge takes place this August. And at least one Southborough cyclists has committed to the bike-a-thon.

Every year, thousands of riders bike the one or two day route to raise money for Dana Farber’s Jimmy Fund:

The Pan-Mass Challenge raises money for life-saving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through an annual bike-a-thon that crosses the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Since its founding in 1980, the PMC has successfully melded support from committed cyclists, volunteers, corporate sponsors and individual contributors. All are essential to the PMC’s goal and model: to attain maximum fundraising efficiency while increasing its annual gift. Our hope and aspiration is to provide Dana-Farber’s doctors and researchers with the necessary resources to discover cures for all cancers.

This year, Southborough’s Jude Joujoute is supporting the cause by choosing the 160 mile two day route from Wellesley to Provincetown. His fundraising page shares:

I ride for Anne, Kara, Diana, K, and their families.

I’m a proud supporter of the PMC because it is leading a charge to beat cancer. In fact, last year 100% of rider-raised revenue went directly to support the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s tireless commitment to finding a cure.

[Editor’s Note: In fact, PMC pledges that 100% of funds raised by PMC riders will continue to be donated to the Jimmy Fund.]
