TeamBrent hit the road for the thirty-fourth annual Pan Mass Challenge (PMC). The PMC is a grueling two-day, 192-mile bike ride from Sturbridge, Massachusetts to Provincetown, Massachusetts. This was TeamBrent’s ninth year taking part in the PMC. On day one of the ride, the five thousand riders wore the official PMC jersey, symbolizing their united front against cancer. On day two of the ride, each team wore their individual jerseys. TeamBrent’s proudly stated, “Together We Make a Difference.” Supporters who lined the streets cheered for hours, playing music, banging on pots, and offering riders cool water. Many supporters held signs thanking the riders with messages such as “I am 11 now because of you” and “My heart beats because of your feet.” A highlight of the journey was crossing by “da hedge” at Cape Cod Sea Camps, where hundreds of screaming children championed each rider. While the PMC donates every rider-raised dollar directly to the cause of fighting cancer, TeamBrent’s passion is fighting neuroblastoma. TeamBrent has contributed a staggering $3.4 million to building a strong neuroblastoma program at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital.
