MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — The Massachusetts Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) is pleased to announce that five farms across the Commonwealth have agreed to host Camping for a Cure events on June 10 to raise funds for MFBF’s team to ride in the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC). All the funds raised by this team will go to cancer research through the Dana-Faber Cancer Research Institution and the Jimmy Fund.
The PMC is a bike-a-thon that brings together thousands of impassioned cyclists, committed volunteers, generous donors and dedicated corporate sponsors to provide the resources necessary to discover cures for all types of cancer. Currently, five farmers and open space supporters are set to ride more than 750 miles combined for those who can’t on Aug. 5 & 6, 2017.
Farms that have agreed to host Camping for a Cure on June 10 include the following:
- Davidian Bros Farm, Northborough, MA
- Nourse Farms, Whately, MA
- Pine Island Farm, Sheffield, MA
- Sauchuk Farm, Plympton, MA
- Willow Brook Farm, Holliston, MA
“We want to thank all these farms that have stepped up and generously offered their farms to hosting Camping for a Cure,” said MFBF President Ed Davidian, who farms in Northborough. “It is through generous acts of kindness, like hosting Camping for a Cure, that we will find a cure for cancer.”
