GZA is once again proud to sponsor a team of riders and support volunteers participating in the Pan Mass Challenge (PMC) to raise money to support the Jimmy Fund and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in the fight against cancer. The PMC is a [nearly] 200-mile endurance challenge from Sturbridge to Provincetown, MA. The fundraising event began in 1980 when 36 cyclists first completed this ride across Massachusetts to raise funds for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Now in its 29th year, the PMC expects to raise $34 million and to date, has raised more than $204 million.
GZA’s involvement in the PMC started twenty years ago when one employee rode in the PMC. Since that time, our involvement and enthusiasm has grown to include as much as 15 riders, dozens of volunteers, and hundreds of supporters. Our fundraising total to date is approximately $500,000. This year, seven GZA employees are undertaking the challenge, with hopes of raising $40,000.
