The Bedford Family Connection Pan-Mass Challenge Bedford Kids Ride team hit the road with their bikes on June 16th for a good cause.
The team consists of 16 kids who are under the age of 7 who have raised $2,397 to benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
For many of the kids on the team, this is a cause that is close to their hearts. The BFC team includes siblings who lost their grandfather 3 years ago and a child who witnessed her grandmother undergo treatments at Dana Farber which did not work. Also, we have a set of sisters who have recently watched their own mother battle breast cancer
As you can see there is a reason all these kids wanted to raise money. We are all riding on to fight against cancer a disease that affects all of us.
