Pan Mass Challenge 2019

Just curious if anyone from this site is riding the PMC this year. I'm doing the Sturbridge-Provincetown route again.

I'd love to do that ride, but too much dough.

The route I'm riding has a $5K minimum. I've ridden it three times before, and trust me, this is the last time. Fundraising is just impossible. And then there's the riding part...

I would love to do Pan Mass, but the fundraising minimum is too high. I'm struggling to raise $500 for a similar charity. I think it would be a little easier to get people to give for Pan Mass since I'm Boston based so all my friends/family are far too familiar with Dana Farber and their work. But my company doesn't help with these things and you really need corporate help or friends with really deep pockets (and generous hearts).

I know there are shorter routes with lower minimums and even virtual rider where you do what you want. But since everyone here is familiar with the Pan Mass, they are going to assume I'm riding Sturbridge to Provincetown and I'd feel like I was "cheating" if I accepted donations and did a shorter ride.

Fundraising is high. Someone who works the event told me that about half the riders don't even bother, and just write a check. I believe it. But I'm not one of them.
