You’ve probably noticed a surge in cyclists crowding Wellesley streets of late, and many of them are gearing up for this weekend’s annual Pan-Mass Challege fundraiser. Cyclists participating in the annual Pan-Mass Challenge will be leaving host Babson College at 7am on Saturday and 7:30am on Sunday. Routes head to Bourne, Provincetown and back to Wellesley.
In all, 155 riders from Wellesley are taking part in the event. Among them is Wellesley Hills’ 30-year-old Emily Saperia (donate here), who will be riding with her 60-year-old mom, Betsy Moody, from Cumberland, R.I. (shown together below). Moody, a breast cancer survivor, completed her first Wellesley-to-Wellesley PMC ride last year.
Cyclists individually will ride up to 190 miles as part of a two-day ride, and collectively they’re riding this year with the goal of raising $34 million for cancer research through Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Here’s how to donate.
