Hundreds of cyclists raising money for cancer research and treatment by Dana Farber Cancer Institute will descend upon Wellesley this weekend (Aug. 2-3) for the annual Pan-Mass Challenge ride, which includes courses between Wellesley and Foxborough/Bourne/Sturbridge/Provincetown. Many riders will start and finish at Babson College.
There’s still time to donate to riders from Wellesley and other communities. Among Wellesley riders: Jeffrey Kaplan; Sean Milano; and Jesse Boehm, a Wellesley resident who is riding from Babson to Provincetown (He rides for his wife Julie, a Wellesley High School biology teacher and a 10-year survivor of tongue cancer). The goal for the overall event, which will feature more than 5,500 riders, is to raise $40 million.
