On August 4th and 5th, Siena will join more than 6,000 other cyclists in the 39th Pan-Mass Challenge, a bike-a-thon that raises money for cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

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.

We are moved to ride for the second year in support of one of our extended family members diagnosed with this disease. Sue Cardinal, wife of Siena’s Project Manager Art Cardinal, was diagnosed with cancer in 2016. Sue is an inspiring and resilient woman, a loving partner and mother of their two sons, Jack and Frankie. We’ve seen up close how the Cardinals have met this challenge with incredible courage and faith, which has led to their unifying motto, “Cardinal Strong”. It is a profound honor to be riding in support of Sue, Art, Jack, and Frankie.

We hate cancer, so we’ve teamed up with the PMC. They make sure 100% of every rider-raised dollar is donated to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Cancer sucks, it feels like betrayal by our bodies. But…I’m riding because this is the best way to prove resilience and I’m confident a cure to some of the million forms of cancer is achievable if we put our minds and hearts into chasing down a cure at a steady 90 RPM cadence. Just as important, I’m riding for Sue and her family (part of my work family).

Pee-wee: [falls off bike after attempting tricks] I meant to do that.

I’ve known Art for quite a few years. When I heard Sue was sick, I didn’t know what to do or how I could help the Cardinals. When the idea of riding PMC was suggested, I jumped right on board. Hopefully my small contribution will help find a cure for cancer.

My best friend’s mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and is currently undergoing treatment. I am riding for her and all the other mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers out there.

I’m using my strength to help those who cannot… and rocking cardinals on my jersey to support an awesome coworker’s family!

I have known Art and Sue for almost 30 years (shit I’m old), and Sue is my wife’s sister. The PMC is the least I can do to help with their battle. I am also riding in memory of my mother Cecile and brother Bobby who both died due to cancer.

“I hope that’s the finish line, my ass can’t take much more of this ride.”

PMC last year was emotional, inspiring, draining, exciting, heartwarming, but most of all one of the best adventures everyone should experience at least once. When I heard Sue was sick and Art and their family had to fight this awful battle, there was no way I wasn’t going to ride for a cure this year.
