Ride of Hope



The participants in TeamBrent’s Pan-Massachusetts Challenge (PMC) ride hit the road for a good cause. The fundraising event brought together some 5,000 cyclists—many of them cancer survivors—from all over the world to raise funds to fight cancer. This was Southport-based TeamBrent’s eighth annual participatory ride with the PMC, which was established in 1980. TeamBrent’s fifty cyclists, supported by twenty “roadies,” sported jerseys supplied by Vineyard Vines. The ride began in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, and ended a staggering 192 miles away in Provincetown, Massachusetts. This year, the PMC donated every rider-raised dollar to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Fighting cancer is a cause close to TeamBrent’s heart.

The organization was formed seven years ago to help then three-year-old Brent fight Stage IV neuroblastoma. Brent, now ten, participated in the event as one of the captains of the Cape Cod Sea Camps PMC team. Southport resident and TeamBrent cofounder Dana McCreesh was the keynote speaker at the PMC’s annual Volunteer Dinner at the Provincetown Inn. TeamBrent raised over $450,000 during this year’s ride. Combined with other fundraising events in their history, TeamBrent has raised over $6 million to help fight childhood cancer.
