HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

By riding or volunteering for the PMC Kids Rides program, you are contributing to the PMC's mission or raising money for adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. To date, the PMC Kids Rides program has raised more than $8 million for the PMC.

DESCRIPTION

PMC Kids Rides are mini bike-a-thons that involve children ages 2 to 15 in the PMC mission by providing them the opportunity to fight cancer just like the adults. From a short obstacle course for tricycles to a 26-mile trek, the PMC Kids Rides vary in terrain and mileage. Some have music, games, and food. Others have silent auction, character appearances, and face painting.


ITEMS NEEDED

To register, kids will need:

1. An adult/parent to complete the registration

2. A computer (to do the registration)

3. A credit card to pay the registration fee*

*Please note that every ride has a registration fee of $10-$20 per child, and a fundraising commitment of $30 per child.
