Biking the Pan-Mass Challenge 2012by Bike tour guru
The Pan-Massachusetts Challenge attracts riders from throughout the world to participate in a charity event for life-saving cancer research and treatment. The bike-a-thon, which crosses the Commonwealth of Massachusetts over two days and which features a variety of routes for riders of all ages and abilities, raises money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. On August 4th and 5th, there will be several rides for cyclists to participate in to support the cause.
As usual, DuVine will be doing its part to support the PMC. With about 5,500 riders participating, the PMC is a huge undertaking. Over the two-day period, the cyclists will ride between 25 and 190 miles, traveling through a total of 46 Massachusetts cities and towns. The goal is to bring their 33-year fundraising total to almost $375 million, which will require about $36 million this year. DuVine is pitching in not only by riding in and assisting at the PMC in August, but also by sponsoring the PMC lunch on day one of the journey. We'll be there to greet, and of course feed, the thousands of hungry cyclists passing through on their way to the finish line.
DuVine and the PMC are already on the road as we speak, cycling along in Piedmont to raise money for the cause. Of course our bike tour in Piedmont has been a ton of fun for all of us. But why shouldn't it be? You can have a great time while fighting for a great cause at the same time. We've been putting in the miles in Piedmont in preparation for the 2012 Pan-Mass Challenge that is inching closer by the day. Every dollar counts, and so does every mile.
Join us and DuVine Founder Andy Levine as we prepare for the PMC. We can't wait to see you there.
