Social Responsibility

Social responsibility is an ethical framework and suggests that an entity, be it an organization or individual, has an obligation to act for the benefit of society at large. Social responsibility is a duty every individual has to perform so as to maintain a balance between the economy and the ecosystems. (Wikipedia)

Pan-Massachusetts Challenge

The Pan-Massachusetts Challenge raises money for life-saving cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through an annual bike-a-thon that crosses the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Since its founding in 1980, the PMC has successfully melded support from committed cyclists, volunteers, corporate sponsors and individual contributors. All are essential to the PMC’s goal and model: to attain maximum fundraising efficiency while increasing its annual gift. Our hope and aspiration is to provide Dana-Farber’s doctors and researchers the necessary resources to discover cures for all cancers. The PMC has raised more than $850 mil. for cancer research and in 2021 gave $64 mil. to the Dan-Farber Cancer Institute. 

DocNetwork’s founder is a long-time rider for the PMC and has raised more than $250,000 to defeat cancer.
