August is here and with it so many festivals, shows and events.  One event I look forward to every year is the Pan Mass Challenge, every August thousands of bike riders make the trek from Sturbridge to Provincetown on their bikes, while raising money for the Dana- Farber Cancer Institute.  Riders of all abilities hop on their bikes and make the 192 mile journey to honor family or friends they know who have dealt with cancer, teams of people ride and that is what is amazing is how everyone puts their heart and soul into this ride!  Imagine riding your bicycle for 192 miles, not easy, but if you ask a rider they will tell you that it's a whole lot easier that what patients are going through.  If you are along one of the Pan Mass Challenge routes this weekend, take a moment and applaud and cheer the riders as they go by.
