"I love the camaraderie, all these people coming together for a cause"

The Milford Daily News reports on the rest stop for the PanMass Challenge that rode through Franklin on Saturday in part by writing:
This year – the 35th year of the challenge – roughly 5,700 riders are participating, according to Jackie Herskovitz, the Pan-Mass Challenge spokesperson. 
Riders choose from 12 routes that range from 25 to 190 miles. The ride has three starting lines in Sturbridge, Wellesley and Bourne, and five finish lines: two in Provincetown and one each in Foxborough, Wellesley and Bourne. 
At press time, the challenge has raised roughly $26 million, all of which goes to research and patient care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute via the Jimmy Fund. 
The goal this year is $40 million. The final day to donate is Oct. 1, she said.
