2011 marked my 10th tear riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge, a bike ride fundraising event for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Since 2006 I’ve been riding with Team Kermit, a team I founded with seven other riders in memory of my friend Jared Branfman who died from brain cancer at age 23 after a 2.5 year battle with cancer.
The photo on the left is of Team Kermit 2011. We are women and men, young and old, amazing bike riders and slow pedal pushers, friends, and family. Over the past six years Team Kermit has raised over $1.4M for cancer patient treatment and education at The Jimmy Fund/Dana Farber. I’m so proud for all we have accomplished.
The second photo is of me finishing in Provincetown MA after two days and 196 miles.
