Print More

The 2024 Suffield Pan Mass Challenge Kids Ride, presented by Koverage Insurance Group, will be held on May 11 at the McAlister School. In its 13th year, the Kids Ride has raised over $500,000 for The Jimmy Fund/Dana Farber Cancer Institute through the Pan Mass Challenge.

“We are thrilled to be back and look forward to gathering again with friends, volunteers, supporters and especially our riders and their families. We are very proud of what this day has become in Suffield and are extremely grateful for the support we have received. None of this would be possible without the hundreds of people that have taken the time to help in so many ways”, said Chris Nikolis, co-coordinator of the event. “This is a great town and we look forward to our best Kids Ride yet.”

Kids ages 2-17 are welcome to ride either of two safe, supervised courses. Younger children can ride the closed off middle school parking lot circle and older kids can ride a five mile loop up Hill Street to Russell Street and back. The day includes a raffle/silent auction, with all guests invited to stay for lunch, live music and a fun celebration. Terrific sponsorship opportunities are also available.

In 12 years, the event has hosted over 1,500 kids and raised over $500,000 for The Jimmy Fund and fight against cancer. 100% of all proceeds and donations from the event go directly to The Jimmy Fund, both of which are among the highest rated charities in the country. In 44 years, PMC has raised $972 million for Dana Farber and The Jimmy Fund, including a record $72 million in 2023.
