Get Ready to Ride in the Franklin PMC Kids Ride - Jun 16

The 13th annual Franklin PMC Kids Ride will be held on Sunday, June 16, from 8 AM to 12 PM. The Franklin ride is one of more than 35 PMC Kids Rides throughout the New England area. Last year, the Franklin ride attracted more than 230 young cyclists between the ages of 3 and 14, who rode between 3 and 10 miles. The ride raised more than $58,000, exceeding their goal for cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Altogether, the PMC Kids Rides program has raised more than $9 million since their first ride in 1998. This year's goal is $60,000.

This ride is a unique event that motivates kids to learn about the importance of giving back, introduces them volunteerism and fundraising, and offers a way for children to become part of the PMC mission in a safe and athletic way. 100% of every rider-raised dollar goes directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. These donations benefit research, treatment, and care for children and families impacted by cancer.

The Franklin PMC Kids Ride will will start and end at the Jefferson School, located at 628 Washington Street in Franklin. Kids can select from a 3, 6, or 10-mile course. They will also enjoy an after-ride celebration with music, games, food, and more. Younger participants, not yet on two wheels, can partake in the Tikes and Trikes course in a contained area at the school. This area has several fun stations and activities for the little ones, including a car wash, gas station, snack stand, craft table, face painting, and more. There is a $10 registration fee and a $30 fundraising minimum for all riders.

Riders and volunteers can register, and donations can be made online at All local communities are encouraged to participate. For more information about the ride or sponsorship opportunities, please contact Lisa Marchioni at

Many kids. One mission. Cure cancer.
