2020 Pan-Mass Challenge

0

logoOnce again this year, John Berryhill and I are registered to ride in the 2020 Pan-Mass Challenge to raise money and awareness for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Dana-Farber is one of the leading cancer organizations in the world, and we are happy to support their mission of providing exceptional cancer treatment and completing advanced cancer research. Since the start of the Pan-Mass Challenge ride in 1980, the PMC has raised $717 million in funding for Dana-Farber and its Jimmy Fund.

Obviously, the circumstances of the ride are tentative due to the uncertainty of whether it will be possible this year to assemble the rolling army of nearly 7,000 PMC riders expected.

John and I are committed to the two day 162 mile route from Babson College in Wellesley to the Provincetown Inn.  If we can’t do that route, we intend to find a way to cover the same mileage either remotely or virtually. John has already been planning an equivalent route in mileage and elevation gain that will consist of socially-distant laps of backroads of his area (pictured), and I am logging time on the trainer.

Regardless of what happens with the bike ride, one thing that is certain is John and I will be doing all we can to raise funds for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and its Jimmy Fund. 57% of the annual budget for the Jimmy Fund is raised through the PMC, so you can understand why it is important for us to carry on our fundraising.

If you are able to contribute, I would greatly appreciate it if you could support my ride by donating to Dana-Farber via my PMC fundraising page. I know that John would also appreciate your support of his fundraising campaign as well. With your support, John and I have raised over $80,000 for Dana-Farber via our Pan-Mass Challenge rides. We hope to surpass $100,000 this year by reaching our fundraising goals.

Listed below, are this year’s generous donors from within the domain industry. I would love to add you to this list, regardless of how much you are able to contribute. I will keep a running tally of domain industry donors as a way to say thank you.

Within the next couple of weeks, John and I will kick off the cycling jersey aspect of our fundraiser. If you are interested in being a shirt sponsor, shoot me a note. Once again, Daniel Negari from the .XYZ Registry has agreed to be the lead jersey sponsor:

“XYZ is honored to continue our support for Elliot and John’s 2020 Pan-Mass Challenge. We believe that if we remain committed to helping one another during this uncertain time, the domain community will come out of this stronger than ever.”

John and I are looking forward to reaching our fundraising goals and hopefully riding together in August.
