The 2011 Pan Mass Challenge was a star-studded event –with over 5000 riders — cycling from Sturbridge to Provincetown, MA. An annual bike-a-thon that raises more money for charity than any other single event in the country, the Pan-Mass Challenge donates 100% of every rider-raised dollar directly to its cause: cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institite through its Jimmy Fund. While there were a varieties of legs riders could choose from, the two-day ride clocks in at 192 miles.
Our very own star, Immaculate CEO, Paul Nardone, chose this longest route. With a fundraising goal of $5000, Paul, with help from family, friends, and Immaculate Baking, blew that goal out of the water, and Paul’s participation contributed over $8000 to the millions raised directly by riders to support the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s tireless commitment to finding a cure for cancer.
Our own Immaculate non-riding team joined over 3000 volunteers to feed the hungry crews. We set up camp around the half-way point, and we baked and baked and baked. The best part? Hearing the stories, seeing the commitment, and promising to come back again next year!
