NEEDHAM, Mass. — Registration for the 35th annual Pan-Mass Challenge, which benefits cancer research, opens Jan. 15. PMC weekend, set for Aug. 2 and 3, will raise money to support adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund. This year, more than 5,500 cyclists are expected to raise $40 million. The PMC contributes 100 percent of every rider-raised dollar directly to the Jimmy Fund. Cyclists come from 38 states and five countries representing riders of various cycling experience levels, cancer survivors and current cancer patients, ages 13 to 80 and older. The 35th annual event will offer 13 routes that range from 25 to 190 miles over one or two days. Fundraising minimums range from $500 to $4,300.
