Malden resident among those honored

  On Saturday, May 13, PMC Pedal Partners – pediatric patients at the Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (Dana-Farber) who are paired with Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) riders and teams – will come together at The 521 Overlook at Fenway Park. During the celebration, this year’s Pedal Partners will meet the PMC teams riding and fundraising in their honor on August 5-6, including Norma-Rose of Malden, Mass., who is a Pedal Partner for Team Duncan.

  The PMC Pedal Partner program, which is proudly presented by MFS Investment Management, is an exciting experience for these children as they become a part of a community that is fully committed to raising funds for cancer research and treatment. Along with their loved ones and PMC riders, those attending will enjoy a morning full of activities, including interactive arts & crafts and a continental breakfast – complete with a special appearance from the Boston Red Sox mascot, Wally the Green Monster.

  Since 1980, PMC has raised $900 million for adult and pediatric cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber, making it the most successful single athletic fundraising event in the country. PMC donates 100% of every rider-raised dollar to Dana-Farber and accounts for more than 60 percent of the Jimmy Fund’s annual revenue. In August, cyclists will pedal up to 211 miles with the goal of raising a record-breaking $70 million.
