Pan-Mass Challenge Raises Record $63 Million for Dana-Farber

Candid, 23 October 2019

The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston has announced a record $63 million gift from the Pan-Mass Challenge, an annual two-day cycling event that raises funds for adult and pediatric cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber

Raised by more than sixty-eight hundred riders, this year’s gift tops the $56 million raised for the institute’s Jimmy Fund in 2018 and boosts the amount raised through the event since 1980 to more than $717 million. Earlier this year, former CEO and PMC rider Patrick Byrne challenged PMC to increase its goal from $58 million to $60 million, pledging to give $1 million if the goal was achieved, while the family of Fred Levin and his daughter-in-law Terri, both former Dana-Farber patients, made a $2 million gift. Sponsored by New Balance and the Red Sox Foundation, PMC donates 100 percent of the funds raised to Dana-Farber and is the institute’s largest single donor, accounting for more than 55 percent of Jimmy Fund revenue.
