Support Southborough cyclists in the PMC

Seventeen cyclists from Southborough will be among those participating in the “Reimagined” Pan Mass Challenge next week. Instead of riding as part of a fleet, this year, riders will head out on their own or as part of smaller groups. As always, the event raises funds for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute fundraiser.

Southborough Wicked Local posted the names of riders from our town. I followed up to find their profiles. To donate in their names, click on their links below:


Wicked Local wrote of this year’s event:

On Aug. 1, more than 10,000 participants. . . will virtually take part in the reimagined 2020 Pan-Mass Challenge with the goal of raising critical funds for cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. . .

The organization’s traditional ride, which typically includes 12 routes spanning 25 to 192 miles over the first weekend of every August, will be transformed into a virtual experience Aug. 1, following an Opening Ceremonies television broadcast to kick things off July 31.

“As we prepare for PMC 2020 Reimagined, we are grateful for the continued support from our growing community,” said Billy Starr, founder and executive director of the PMC. “It is thanks to the unwavering passion and commitment of our riders, volunteers, donors and sponsors that the PMC can continue to make tangible impact on advancements in cancer research and treatment, even through this difficult time. We look forward to having old and new participants join us on August 1, bound together by our dream of a world without cancer.”
