Cathy Johnston, of Stoughton, is a Pan-Mass Challenge cyclist and cancer survivor who was honored by the Boston Red Sox on Sunday, June 15 during PMC Day at Fenway Park. Johnston was among other cancer survivors who rode their bikes around the warning track in a pre-game ceremony during which the PMC’s 35th anniversary logo was unveiled on the Green Monster.
On August 2 and 3, together with 5,800 cyclists, Johnston will ride up to 190 miles across Massachusetts in the 35th annual Pan-Mass Challenge. This year’s goal is to raise $40 million for adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The PMC is a pioneer of the athletic fundraising industry and today raises more money for charity than any other single event in the country. The PMC is a model of fundraising efficiency and contributes 100 percent of every rider-raised dollar directly to the cause.
