Dear LRT Ski Racers,
LRT racers Matthew and Nicole Piispanen started the Pan Mass Challenge Teen Mountain Bike Ride in 2010 to bring together teenagers from high schools across the East Coast to cycle in an off-road ride as a way to raise money for cancer research. Since then we have been joined by other teens that have deep roots with LRT, including Sophie Sherman, Peter Sugar, Katherine Carbonaro, Annelies Sugar, Nick Sherman, Nicolas Connelly, Josh Sapers and Brianna Stout, all of whom made it their mission to raise critically needed funds for cancer research conducted at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Last year our event drew riders from over 20 different high schools, included close to 100 participants, and raised over $8,000.
We encourage all LRT racers, ages 12-18, to sign up for the event and to join team Loon Race Team. Our goal this year is to get a bigger group and try to raise over $10,000 for cancer research. This is also a great way to get in shape for ski season!
To sign up go to www.kids.pmc.org/Tmbr.aspx. When it asks for team, type “Loon Race Team”.
Watch this video to see what the ride is like.
When: Sunday, September 28, 2014 from 10am to noon
What: An off-road ride on carriage trails - a 1.7 mile loop which the riders can ride once or multiple times. This is a very easy trail which anyone can do. No technical skills are required. You need a mountain bike or hybrid.
Who: Students ages 12 - 18 years old
Where: The Hale Reservation in Westwood, MA
Teens can earn 4 hours of community service credit for doing this ride that can be applied to requirements for high school graduation, college applications and National Honor Society requirements.
Join our post ride party where we have free food and music by student DJs. At the party, we will hold a raffle where you can win lots of cool prizes including clothing store, spa and restaurant gift cards. Each year the student that raises the most money for cancer research walks away with a brand new mountain bike that we award at the post ride party!
We hope you will join Team LRT and have some fun!
