I just walked over to our wonderful Brewster General Store to get a picture of the cyclists ridding by for the 2014 PMC. As I was walking past the many spectators cheering on the riders, I had that feel good feeling in my stomach. Everyone was screaming thank you to the riders and the riders were giving everyone the high 5. After reading the history on-line of the pan mass I was even more impressed with the cause. Some of our guest staying at the Captain Freeman had friends or family doing the race and wanted to be close by for moral support of the challenge.
“Established by Billy Starr in 1980 and under his direction, the PMC has grown considerably and consistently from its modest beginnings into an event that draws 5,500 cyclists from 36 states and eight countries. Today, the Pan-Mass Challenge raises more money than any other athletic fundraising event in the country. The PMC generates half of the Jimmy Fund’s annual revenue and it is Dana-Farber’s single largest contributor. Over the past 34 years, PMC cyclists have ridden to raise and contribute $414 million to cancer research.” as quoted from the Pan Mass Challenge Web Site
Wishing all of the cyclists a safe journey as they cycle across our wonderful peninsula, Cape Cod!
