DocsNetwork supports the following entities:
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 with the necessary resources to discover cures for all cancers. The PMC has raised more than $950 mil. for cancer research and in 2023 gave $78 mil. to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In 2024 the PMC will pass the $1 billion mark.
DocNetwork’s founder is a long-time rider for the PMC and has raised over $250,000 to defeat cancer.
