ALEXANDRIA, VA – On August 1st, the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) kicked off its annual cycling & fundraiser weekend with a total of 6,000 cyclist participants, including NES Associates’ own Robb Witt. The PMC is a two-day, 90-mile ride across Massachusetts to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston.


Robb Witt shows his NES pride at the 2015 Pan-Mass Challenge after riding in honor of his sister.

Cyclists began in both Sturbridge and Wellesley, Massachusetts as they embarked on their ride across the state to raise $45 million in support of adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at DFCI. After this year’s ride and in the 35 years since PMC started fundraising, the organization will have reached a half billion dollars since 1980.
