PMC Kids Rides draw young cyclists in to the PMC mission: raising money for adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund. The PMC Kids Rides program began in 2005, and since then, PMC Kids Rides have continued to form throughout New England and beyond, as parents and children invite neighbors with tricycles, training wheels and two-wheelers to get involved. The program has raised over $8 million for the PMC.

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 adults (who do the PMC Ride). 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 auctions, character appearances and face painting.
