2017 PMC Ride: Elliot Silver

Elliot Silver

I have friends and family who have courageously battled cancer, and I want to do what I can to help raise funds for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and its Jimmy Fund through our Pan-Mass challenge ride on August 5th and 6th. This year, I will be participating in the two day, 163 mile ride from Wellesley, Massachusetts to Provincetown, Massachusetts.

I support the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston because it is helping people fight cancer and helping to find a cure for cancer. My wife Karen and I have been members of Friends of Dana-Farber since moving to Massachusetts in 2012. We support Dana-Farber financially and also by attending events and increasing awareness. I recently joined the Dana-Farber Leadership Council, where I plan to do even more to help DFCI.

This will be my fourth Pan-Mass Challenge ride. With your help last year, we raised over $11,000 for Dana-Farber and its Jimmy Fund. Since 2014, we have raised over $25,000 for Dana-Farber! This year, my goal is to raise $12,000, and I know I can do it with your support.

2017 Boston Marathon: Karen Silver

Karen Silver

Nearly everyone has been touched in some way by cancer. For me, my brother was diagnosed with neuroblastoma as an infant, and was treated at Dana-Farber. Since then, my family has been extremely involved with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund. Additionally, I have friends and other family who have courageously battled cancer, and I want to do what I can do to help.

I am proud to be a member of the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge (DFMC) team, raising money for the Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

My goal is to raise $8,000 with the help of my family and friends. The DFMC team has a goal of raising $5.4 million this year. This will be my first Boston Marathon.

Thank you in advance for your support, and thank you to Rightside for sponsoring Team Silver!
