How did your town do?

This year’s Pan-Massachusetts Challenge riders came from 36 states and eight countries. Thousands of you also came from right here in New England.


In Massachusetts, PMC riders represented 276 towns – that’s more than 78 percent of the communities in the state.  


Each rider made his or her own significant contribution to help the PMC raise a record-breaking amount. We crunched the numbers to find out where the most money came from by rider hometown.


The 259 riders who live in Newton combined to raise more money than another local community – collectively surpassing the $2 million mark. Exceeding $1 million were riders who live in Boston, Wayland and Wellesley.


Here’s our list of the top ten fundraising rider hometowns:


Newton         $2,064,947

Boston          $1,514,607

Wayland        $1,224,313

Wellesley      $1,212,037

Dover             $871,924

Needham      $804,892

Brookline      $675,951

New York City $545,500

Cambridge   $484,983

Concord       $484,970


Just barely missing the top 10 this year is the town of Andover, where riders raised $474,263.

    Might be interesting to see the average fundraising per rider in each town, as well, although perhaps they do all average out around the HH level…

    Thanks for the comment.

    As you know each cyclist had a fundraising requirement — between $1,300 and $4,000 — depending on his or her route.

    Interesting stat for 2008 — more than 90 percent of riders raised MORE than they were required.
