Make Donations for Pan-Massachusetts Challenge - Help Support Captain Tim's 2009 Ride in the Pan-Mass Challenge toward a Cure for Cancer

Help Support Tim's 2024 Ride to Fight Cancer

corporate sponsors www.bunnyclark.com www.barnbilly.com www.chamberworks.com Welcome to my site where I attempt to make a difference for cancer patients throughout the world by making time to raise money through the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge (PMC). The PMC is an 192 mile (two day) cycling event where cyclists are sponsored by individuals/companies in order to raise the money needed to fight cancer and for cancer care. I am one of those cyclists. Each sponsor's donation goes directly to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston, Massachusetts via the Jimmy Fund, the fund raising arm of the DFCI. The Jimmy Fund was established in 1949. The PMC was established in 1980 and has since raised over half of the total money the Jimmy Fund has raised in donations since it's inception or a total of $972,000,000.00. It is the largest sum of money ever contributed to a charity by an athletic fund raising event anywhere in the world. I got involved in 2007. By the end of the seventeenth year of my involvement (the end of 2023), I had moved a total of $474,146.00 in donations. Many donations come from the same individuals who give to my cancer drive year after year. But there are many new contributors every year as well. In 2023, my goal is to raise over $40,000.00 as soon as I can and then add to that total. I have never reached that mark. The closest I came was the 2021 season where I was able to raise $37,950.00. One hundred percent of every donation I receive goes to cancer research; not a penny goes to administrative costs. Thank you all for your, generosity, trust and support!

The digital image above was taken by me on my iPhone 13 pro during the May 7, 2023 training ride with the Maine Coast Cycling Club. The main ride leaves Mainely Bicycle in Kennebunk, Maine at 8:00 AM during the warmer months and 9:00 AM on Sundays in the winter. The shot is a "selfie" of me leading the "A" group of cyclists near Kennebunk. I ended up putting 71 miles on the bike that day after riding up from Ogunquit, Maine, completing the 40 mile Club ride and then riding home. The MC3 crew is the nicest, most sociable, considerate bunch of cyclists you will ever meet. Riding with this crew changed my life for the better. And what better way to train for the Pan-Mass Challenge than with people who you really care about.

The thing I like most about the PMC ride is meeting everyone, the like minded wonderful individuals who make this such a great event. I look at the regular PMC ride as a gift to me for all the fund raising I do.

Paul Haseltine (Hez) was the person who suggested I do this event in 2006 after he had ridden in it that year for his first time. I was interested in helping fight cancer. He also knew that I liked riding a road bike for distance. He said; "This would be perfect for you. You can raise money for cancer, push the donation money to a reputable organization located in our own back yard and enjoy a challenging, well run and felicitous cycling event." I researched it. The more I read about the event and the many successes of the DFCI, the more I liked the idea. Hez had completed one of the shorter rides in 2006. I agreed to do it with him for the first time in 2007 if we could do it together and take part in the longest ride. We have been doing it ever since, staying in the same room at Sturbridge and MMA. A life long friend, I wouldn't do the event without him. Or, at least, it wouldn't be nearly as fun. I got more serious about it when he was found to have prostate cancer a couple of years after we started doing it together. Hez was also the one who suggested that I be part of the P4K team. He thought my donation money would be better spent funneling it directly to research and that this was, in his opinion, the preeminent team to belong to. Again, I did the research and decided to give it a try. Now I too feel that I get more bang for the buck by riding and pooling donation money with the P4K team. I guess to me, Hez is the most important cog in the wheel of my involvement. I've come to believe that he has the most common sense of anyone who I have had the pleasure to know. He's a good friend. My best friend.

The reasons to donate are many. But there are a few salient reasons to continue to do so.

  • First, the DFCI is good at what they do, one of the top five cancer research & care facilities in the country every year.

  • Second, one hundred percent of your donation goes right to the source, the DFCI. The cost of running the PMC (about $5 million) is underwritten by businesses around Boston. So every rider raised penny goes right to the general fund or an specific area of oncology of your choice.

    Mine goes directly to research. As mentioned above, I belong to a team called Precision for Kids (P4K), the name of the team derived from the type of "new age" cancer research called precision cancer medicine. This will be the fifth year I have belonged to this team. In the twelve seasons before, my money went to the general fund. I decided to go with the Precision for Kids team because they fund research with Dr. Katherine Janeway, a cancer survivor herself, who divides her time between working at DFCI and Boston Children's Hospital in genetic profiling. Her goal is to find the specific gene in the DNA sequence of the person with the cancer, use a targeted drug that will "switch off" the gene (they haven't yet learned how to replace the gene) causing the cancer and, thus, bypass the traditional use of chemotherapy and radiation while curing the patient. She has already had great success in real time with several children at the time of this writing. This made me want to direct my donor's money in her direction. Eight years ago her research wasn't being funded at all! Once her methods are perfected, the techniques will spread to all other research teams for all types of cancers. I'm excited about the prospects of her team's work.

  • Third, the DFCI is in our back yard.

  • Fourth, the innovative work they do spills into other facilities and other areas of medicine making it better for everyone in the U.S. and around the world.

  • Fifth, you can deduct your donation when filing your tax returns.

  • Sixth, the more money the DFCI receives, the better able they are to hire the best people (researchers/doctors) to do the job. This will continue to make them the best to support.

  • Seventh, individuals I know are now cancer free because of the good work at the DFCI.

    Thank you all so much for supporting me in this wonderful event. It's the event of a life saved for many of those people with the disease. And cancer won't go away unless someone gets involved. I am just one of the many who believe in this event. And, last year, this one cycling event raised over $69,000,000.00.

    The event has many rides. Mine, the longest of the few available and the original ride, is a two day ride. It starts in Sturbridge at 5:30 AM sharp on Saturday, August 5, 2023 and ends, on the first day, 111 miles away at Bourne, Massachusetts at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy (where we will be spending the night). The second day starts at 6:00 AM (or earlier - depending on the rider - there is no established/organized group start on the second day) on Sunday, August 6, 2023 and ends, 81 miles away, in Provincetown, Massachusetts. I have a ticket for the slow ferry that leaves Provincetown at 3:00 PM and arrives in Boston, Massachusetts sometime before sunset.

    I am seventy-two years old, a life long endurance athlete and an avid deep sea party boat fisherman/captain/owner and President/General Manager of my family's restaurant business in Perkins Cove (Barnacle Billy's, Inc.) Ogunquit, Maine. I chose the PMC as my first pick for a fund raiser because of the cycling but also because I wanted to be part of something that really has an impact on cancer research. The researchers I support have already cured five individuals who never had a hope of survival until Dr. Janeway's team got involved. In fact, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City sent Dr. Janeway her first patient, a girl, eight years ago because their efforts, at the time, were not helping. In fact, the initial cancer had metastasized to other organs in the girl's body. The Center had heard of Dr. Janeway's innovative work and suggested to the girl's parents that they should take a trip to Boston. The parents took the Center's advice and rented an apartment near the DFCI. The rest is history. This girl has been cancer free for nine years. It took almost six months to find the drug that would shut off the gene that was creating the cancer. I am very grateful to have found such a great place to put our donation money.

    Keep in mind, the amount donated is not the most important thing, although the more the better. But the number of donors is very important indeed. I don't care how large or small the donation is as every bit of money will help cancer victims in some way. If you, as a donor, want to make your contribution anonymous, write this as a note with your check and it will be so. Otherwise, donors and donations will appear below. This list will be edited as soon as I am able with your contribution added in order of the date on the check or the date I receive the check. Thank you in advance.

    On June 5, 2023, I crashed my bike a mile from home at the end of a thirty-four mile solo ride in the morning before work. I hit an unmarked speed bump on a road that, the day before, had no speed bump at all. Hitting the bump had me thrown backwards on to a stone wall, breaking six vertebrae, dislocating both shoulders, breaking eight ribs, puncturing both lungs and breaking my scapula in five places. One of the vertebrae that I broke was C5 at the base of my neck. Plus, three of the other broken vertebrae were burst fractures of T5, T8 and T9 in the thoracic area of the spine. Needless to say, I ended up in the hospital and rehab hospital for two weeks. This crash ended my plans for riding in the PMC last year. And it kept me at a very low profile for the rest of the year. I have not ridden a bike since the accident. But it didn't stop me from raising money through donations. I still raised $32,230.00 which is the fourth most I have raised for a year in the seventeen years I have been involved in this event. I may not be able to ride this coming season as well. But as Billy Starr, the founder of the PMC, always says "When you register for the PMC, you are signing up for a fundraising mission first, and a bike ride second." This has always been my feeling since the start. First things first. Right?

    Every year, I design a unique t-shirt corresponding to the PMC ride of that season. I sell these shirts for $30.00 in Perkins Cove, Ogunquit, Maine, all the proceeds going to the P4K fund. Because I have the Bunny Clark logo, I write the shirt off to advertising. In other words, I do not take the cost of the shirt out of the donation money generated by the sale of the shirt. Every year the shirt has a different theme, different color and a totally new design. The emblems that appear on every shirt mirror the logos of the key businesses that support me annually and, my own PMC logo/motif, a fish riding a bicycle. Last year's theme, shown above, was the "Tribute to Teagan" shirt. Teagan Carver is the daughter of a good friend of mine, Andy Carver, who belongs to the same team that I do. Andy and I have been riding the PMC for years. During those years, the PMC ride has gone by his house. It was there that Teagan and the Carver Family got involved in helping the athletes who rode through on the way to Provincetown Massachusetts, the end of the ride. I wanted to highlight the volunteers of the PMC "from the Carver Family down" with this shirt. Since I was focusing on Teagan who has showed such keen interest in the fundraising, I used her favorite colors (purple and yellow) to make the shirt, gave my theme to the graphics designer I use and came up with the shirt shown above. In the digital images, the whole Carver Family is wearing the 2023 PMC/Bunny Clark season's shirt, yellow with mostly purple writing. The digital image on the left shows Teagan at sixteen years old (she started volunteering at 5 years old, I believe) showing the back of the shirt. The digital image on the right shows the whole Carver Family. From left to right, top row is nineteen year old Katie Carver, Olivia Carter (the matriarch of the family), Andy Carver and Teagan. In the second row below is thirteen year old Callum Carver. Families and people like the Carver's unselfishly donate their time to volunteer during the PMC event and raise money through the donations they get just like the riders. No less noble, they are the machinery that moves the event through Massachusetts with Teagan as the tip of the spear; at least in my mind. My respect for the Carver family as a whole is through the roof and are representatives of the true fiber of this country.

  • A digital image of me, Tim Tower, taken at 10:00 AM, August 6, 2016, fifteen miles from the finish of the first leg of the PMC ride from the Sturbridge to Provincetown route. This leg stopped at Mass Maritime Academy where we would stay over night in the dorms there before the start of the next day. At the time the shot was taken, the photographer was lying prone on the right hand side of the road. I was the second rider to pass him. But I lost my place when I stopped to fill water bottles at the next water stop. As is customary on the first day, I am wearing the full 2016 PMC kit with matching socks. © PMC Photography

Andy's house is right on the route from Sturbridge to Bourne, Massachusetts. He is one of the main talents of the P4K team and very generous with his time in that regard. There were a number of the team individuals who stopped at the same time. Teagan is modeling the 2021 Bunny Clark/PMC t-shirt. I design a new shirt for every PMC season. The shirt is always a different color, the design is unique and they are all cotton, with some exceptions.

At the time, Hez had done the event for eleven years, one more year than I had. But we have ridden together in the PMC since 2007, a year after he had ridden in the event without me for the first time. We have taken part in this event together ever since. © PMC Image

    At the finish, on the last day, at the Provincetown Inn, the PMC puts on a lunch under a huge tent adjacent to the Inn. On August 5, 2018 at 1:00 PM, I ran into Billy Starr, the founder and CEO of the PMC. I asked Billy if I could have a "selfie" of he and I, which he obliged (below). I am the one in the black PMC cap and sunglasses. It has been a great honor to know the man. © Deb Tower Photography

    In this digital image I am wearing the full kit of the Maine Coast Cycling Club, an organization that I am very happy to be a part of. Probably the nicest crew that I have ever cycled with. One of the rides leaves every Sunday from Kennebunkport at 8:00 AM (9:00 AM in the winter) and goes for 25 to 50 miles, depending on the on the group you are in. Every Sunday morning you will find me with the MC3 crew. Rides average 20 to 21 mph in the faster groups and 17 mph in the slowest group. No one that gets dropped is ever left behind. And I always wear this kit proudly on the second day of the PMC. © Tim Tower Photography

    Sitting on a hospital gurney in the emergency room at Tobey Hospital in Wareham, Massachusetts after I tapped the wheel of the rider ahead of me and went down on the pavement. The crash happened ten miles from the finish of the first day at the 2009 PMC while sitting in, riding with a group of fifteen cyclists. The quick response of the emergency crew had an EMT standing over me within a minute, the ambulance another five minutes. I was rendered unconscious during the crash but the CAT scan results at Tobey came out negative. Such are the dangers when riding with others on a bicycle. The crash was totally my fault but, except for a slightly separated shoulder and a cut over my eye (that required a few stitches), all my injuries were in the "road rash" category. ©

    The shot below was taken by Andy Carver, a selfie of sorts showing Andy in the foreground. To his right is yours truly, just to the left of another cyclist. We are no more than seven miles out from the start line on August 4, 2018. The first day everyone wears the PMC kit of that year. Every year the PMC kits are different. Andy was a professional football player (goalie) in England before moving to the United States and raising a family here. He owns a commercial painting company in Boston. A superb athlete, Andy is always a lot of fun to ride with and certainly a challenge on a bike.

I caught up with him at the 13 mile mark and ended up riding with him for almost 30 miles. At one point during the ride he held my wheel as we left the group he was riding with (Senator John Kerry's group). Although I tried talking with Lance during the ride, he did not talk to me. ©

Very unpretentious and a delight to talk with. ©

We were only a quarter of a mile (the 112 mile mark) from the finish of the first day ride from Sturbridge, MA to Bourne, MA (Mass. Maritime Academy). Senator Kerry is the rider with the black/white shorts and orange Cervélo bike. Surrounding him were the Secret Service contingent who he rode with. I rode for 70 miles with Senator Kerry's group that day. Senator Kerry rode the PMC for many years until he became Secretary of State in 2013 and was unable to participate in the ride that year. ©

    Every Saturday start of the PMC every year, good friends and regular anglers of my boat, the F/V Bunny Clark, drive to Sturbridge, Massachusetts to arrive at 4:30 AM to see Hez and I off and wish us good luck on the first leg of the PMC ride. We always try to get a digital image of the four of us. This shot was taken on August 3, 2019 at 5:00 AM. From left to right are yours truly, Dave Miller (MA), Steve LaPlante (CT) and Hez. ©

    I took the digital image below on August 3, 2019, the first riding day of the Pan-Mass. Challenge. I was riding with some of the team members best suited for my speed and way of riding the bike. The first day requirement on the ride is that every participant/rider has to wear the PMC's kit for that season. The riders who I enjoy riding with form a "train" where one leads and the other riders stay closely behind, drafting each other. It's a means of covering more ground, more quickly with less effort than if you did it alone. I took a few seconds to take a few pictures of the riders leading. ©

    On the second day, all the riders wear their club kits, team kits or kits they enjoy wearing on every day rides. The shot below shows me moving to the back after leading our group, all wearing the P4K team colors. This digital image was taken about ten miles from our destination on the Cape, Provincetown, Massachusetts. In the picture, I'm the closest one to the camera. ©
