This is the 40th PMC and my 16th year riding. It is a very special event which I am proud to be a part of. This year the PMC is aiming to raise $58 million dollars – every penny of rider-contributed funds are donated to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.Thanks to you, I have personally raised $72,000 and the PMC has raised $654 million to date.
The PMC’s commitment makes it possible for The Dana-Farber to maintain its position as a world-leading cancer hospital, as demonstrated in these developments.
1. In 2018, for the 18th consecutive year, The DFCI was the top-ranked cancer hospital in New England by U.S. News & World Report, and they were again the only cancer center in the country ranked in the top four for both adult and pediatric cancer programs.
2. By making their world-class oncology services and innovative care available to more patients, The DFCI has established new partnerships and strategic alliances in Connecticut, Maine, Western Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. In addition, in 2020, The DFCI will open new satellites in the Merrimack Valley and Foxborough, and an extension of our Longwood Campus in Chestnut Hill.
These are just a few highlights of the progress at Dana-Farber that was made possible thanks to the tremendous support of everyone involved in the Pan-Mass Challenge.
