About Bikes Fight Cancer: We love bikes. We hate cancer. Bikes Fight Cancer is a tight-knit team of knuckleheads that ride bikes and are committed to raising money for life-saving cancer research and treatment. Since 2006, we have proudly raised $425,918.42 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute!

About the PMC: The Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) is a bike-a-thon that today raises more money for charity than any other single athletic fundraising event in the country. Benefiting the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the PMC pioneered the $4 billion athletic fundraising industry when it was founded in 1980 by Billy Starr, who remains the event’s executive director, an annual cyclist and a fundraiser. The PMC donates 100 percent of every rider-raised dollar directly to Dana-Farber and is the institute’s largest single contributor, raising more than 52 percent of the annual revenue at The Jimmy Fund®. In 2017, the PMC gave a record gift of $51 million to Dana-Farber, bringing the PMC’s 38-year contribution to Dana-Farber to more than $598 million since its inception in 1980.
