The 5th Annual Bowl with a Bruin & Friends Tournament will bring together former Boston Bruins, New England Patriots, local sports and media celebrities and teams of enthusiastic Bowlers to support the Boston Bruins Foundation Pan Mass Challenge Bike Team and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
The Boston Bruins Foundation’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for children throughout New England by supporting organizations that prioritize academics, athletics, community outreach and health. The Pan Mass Challenge is a perfect match due to their unparalleled efforts to raise funds for pediatric cancer research at the Dana-Farber. The 2019 Bruins Foundation Team raised $480,000, bringing their 14-year total supporting Dana-Farber to over $3.3 million.
One of the joys of riding in the PMC is seeing children with signs along the route stating, “Cancer free for 5 years” or “I’m alive because of you”. It motivates our team to put in the training needed to finish the 2-day, 192-mile ride. Unfortunately this year’s PMC has been turned on its head by COVID and the structured weekend ride has been canceled with riders being asked to “reimagine” their rides, keep the connection their supports intact and do what they can to raise funds for Dana Farber. All one has to remember is that cancer has not self-quarantined during this pandemic and there are still children looking for our help to keep them cancer free and alive during this time which is more than enough motivation for our Bruins Foundation Team and all who ride the PMC.
Thanks for all your support and let’s Strike Out Cancer.
