The Pan-Mass Challenge recently announced the results of its 2018 fundraising efforts, and quite a year it has been. The organization, which raises money for cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, says it raised a record-breaking $56 million. The news was announced over the weekend at a brunch celebrating the 6,400 cyclists who took part in the PMC’s annual bike-a-thon for the charity in August.
