Signed Up for the 2016 Pan-Mass Challenge!

Last year, I rode in the Pan-Mass Challenge fundraising bike ride to raise money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and its Jimmy Fund. With help from friends and colleagues, we raised over $8,000!

This year, my fundraising goal is higher, and I am riding a 2-day 163 mile route (last year I did a 1-day 50 mile route).

Early last week, I signed up for the August ride, and I am excited about challenging myself physically and challenging myself to help raise $10,000. I will be doing some fun fundraising activities via my blog and other channels, but I will likely wait until the early Spring to get into full fundraising mode.

The reason for this article is twofold. First, I want to invite others to sign up for this year’s Pan-Mass Challenge. There are many routes for riders of all abilities. It would be neat if a group of people in the domain name business participated.  The ride generally sells out, so give it some thought in the next few weeks.

Second, I would like  to invite a domain industry company to be a lead sponsor of my ride. Last year, my wife and I rode as Team Silver, and we were sponsored by Rightside. We used TeamSilver.Rocks for our fundraising home page, and we wore our cool TeamSilver.Rocks cycling shirts on our training rides. I will need to train much more (and sooner) this year, so I want to reach out and see if a company is interested in a sponsorship for a great cause.

If you are interested, contact me and we can discuss the details. We can also chat at NamesCon if you are here. Together we can raise a lot of money for an exceptional organization that is helping people battle cancer.
