Take a look at this video produced by the PMC.  It’s called Threads, and it traces a personal quest to find answers about cancer at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and how riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge bike ride for the Jimmy Fund contributes in the fight against the disease.  It talks about cancer research and how riding the PMC helps not only with fundraising, but helps build a community of those who can and want to help make a difference. As one doctor noted in the piece, if we have to ride two hundred miles on a bike and be uncomfortable for a couple of days after, that’s nothing compared to what a cancer patient is put through.  These people going through the treatments are the heroes;  we’re riding for them.
