Team Forza-G

While 2014 marks the 9th year of Forza-G being an “official” Pan Mass Challenge team, our roots go back 13 years to 2001. Each Forza-G rider comes to the PMC with our own very personal reasons for riding – the loss of a family member or a friend, a personal struggle with cancer, the hope that we can make a difference. While it may be one incident or one person in our lives that pushes us to join the cause, the unfortunate truth is that we are regularly hit with more reasons to ride. The very good and positive news is that we are seeing real progress in the search for cures. It is especially touching to hear that a diagnosis that would have given little hope of survival even five or ten years ago may now be successfully treated through work done at the Dana-Farber, with funds raised by PMC riders-funds donated by individuals like you. Last year’s Forza-G PMC squad of riders was 39 riders strong and raised over $260,000. Add to that the dozens of friends and family members and hundreds of individual supporters who give their time, money and positive energy and we’re talking about a very strong force.

In its first 8 years as an official team (2006-2013), Forza-G has raised $1.4 million for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Even though I was sidelined by recurrence in 2011, I did get to see many of my teammates on Sunday morning of PMC weekend. The team fundraising totalled $290,843.90 in 2011, the highest annual total to date.

Team FORZA-G is proud of our 2012 effort – our ever-growing team has raised a grand total of $308,301.15!
