Blogpire Productions to Donate Profits to Dana-Farber & Jimmy Fund Charity Bike Ride
Publishers and supporters of Blogpire Productions have participated in the Pan Mass Challenge (PMC) this past weekend and donating all profits of the upcoming August 12th weekend to the cause.
August 8, 2005 -- Publishers and supporters of Blogpire Productions, a network of product-oriented weblogs, have participated in the Pan Mass Challenge (PMC) this past weekend. The PMC is a bike ride to raise money for cancer research and treatment at The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and The Jimmy Fund. To further support the effort, the Blogpire is donating all profits of the upcoming August 12th weekend to the cause.
"Even though the ride is for fun and to raise money for a great charity, we've been training all summer,” said Scott Manchuso, captain of the Affinnova Fliers team and contributor to the Blogpire. “We just finished a 55 mile ride, and to date I think we have logged somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 training miles."
Nearly 4,000 cyclists will take part in the ride August 6 and 7, 2005. They will travel six different routes, riding between 89 and 192 miles over one or two days, through 46 scenic Massachusetts towns.

The PMC, presented by the Boston Red Sox, is the nation's original fundraising bike-a-thon and today raises more money than any other athletic fundraising event in the country. It is also the most cost efficient. With 97 cents of each dollar raised going directly to the Jimmy Fund, the PMC has contributed more than $122 million to lifesaving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute since its 1980 inception.
