Having participated in this amazing charity event in 2010, I understand the kind of dedication, training and personal willpower it takes to complete such an emotionally and physically challenging event. In 2010, I rode in honor of my father who had just passed away. This year, I am very proud to be able to support my brother-in-law as he takes on this challenge. Please read his words below and consider donating to such a wonderful cause.

On August 2 and 3, I will be participating in the annual 190 mile bike-a-thon in the battle against cancer at the 2014 Pan Mass Challenge. The two day trek travels from Sturbridge, Ma to Province Town on Cape Cod. The PMC raises more money today for charity than any other single event in the country.
This will be my 8th year riding for the cause. For me to even participate in this ride, I must raise $4300. To donate, you can send a check payable to “PMC” to Oakstone Law, 5137 Castello Dr. Ste. 2, Naples FL 34103. You can also donate online here. Donations are tax deductible. Please give what you can to fight for the cure. While we can’t all be riders, we CAN be supporters!
The PMC has raised $414 million dollars for pediatric and adult cancer care and research through the Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston since it’s formation in 1980. The most incredible part of all the fundraising is that THE PMC DONATES 100% OF EVERY RIDER-RAISED DOLLAR TO DANA-FARBER CANCER INSTITUTE THROUGH ITS JIMMY FUND.
Thanks for your consideration.
