Support Bela's Ride for Cancer Research in the Pan Mass Challenge, Aug. 2-3

This August will mark the third year that Bela Csikesz is riding the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge. The 192 mile ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown is truly a unique experience in the class of fundraising events - the scale, the organization, the camaraderie between riders, support volunteers and the thousands of local citizens who come out to support the ride is overwhelming! Last year over 4500 riders participated and the PMC raised $33 million for cancer research! But the statistic that I think is really amazing and unparalleled in fundraising is that last year marked the first time where 100% of the money raised went directly to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for cancer research! This is possible, of course, only because of the generosity of thousands of individuals and corporations that donate materials, services and time towards the smooth running of the PMC, in addition to those who support the riders.

If you can afford it, any amount you contribute would be deeply appreciated - Bela has personally committed to raise a minimum of $4000.
