Publishers and supporters of blog network Blogpire Productions, have participated in the Pan Mass Challenge (PMC) this past weekend. The PMC is a bike ride to raise money for cancer research and treatment at The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and The Jimmy Fund. To further support the effort, Blogpire is donating all profits of the August 12th weekend to the cause.
‘€œEven though the ride is for fun and to raise money for a great charity, we’€™ve been training all summer,’€? said Scott Manchuso, captain of the Affinnova Fliers team and contributor to the Blogpire Network. ‘€œWe just finished a 55 mile ride, and to date I think we have logged somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 training miles.’€?
Nearly 4,000 cyclists took part in the ride August 6 and 7 and travelled six different routes, riding between 89 and 192 miles over one or two days, through 46 scenic Massachusetts towns.
