Bring your favorite ride – whether it be a scooter, hot wheels, tricycle, or bike – and join the BFC for a morning of decorating and practice riding in preparation for the PMC Kids Ride.  We’ll have decorating supplies to get your trike looking its best.  Then take a ride around the tennis courts to practice for the big day.  You are welcome to join this event whether you are signed up for the PMC Kids Ride or not – please come to find out more about this fun community event!
  • BEDFORD FARMS ICE CREAM GOLDEN TICKET FLAVORS TO BE REVEALED on JUNE 1: PMC auction winners of The Golden Tickets to Bedford Farms Ice Cream have been busy creating their flavor!  Shhh….it’s a secret!  The name and flavors will be unveiled June 1st!  Be sure to stop by Bedford Farms from June 1st – June 13th to grab a scoop or two.  Bedford Farms will donate all sales of the Golden Ticket PMC Flavors to the PMC Bedford Kids Ride and The Jimmy Fund!

The Pan Mass Challenge Kids Rides give children a way to become activists for charity at an early age, while doing something fun and athletic!  Through the PMC Kids Ride Program, kids of all ages ride their bikes to raise money for life-saving cancer research and treatment at Dana Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund.  Volunteers in Bedford have worked to pull together a great day.  We hope you join us.
