Bike Shop offers fundraising help to PMCers

The Daily Item of Lynn reports that a Peabody bike shop wants to help PMC riders with their fundraising.

Charitable organizations have found it to be difficult to raise funds for their causes in years past, but with the falling economy, they’re feeling the heat even more.

Two local businessmen, however, hope they can help turn things around.

Dean Phillips and Marty Miserandino, co-owners of the specialty bike shop Fit Werx 2 on Foster Street have decided to reward their customers with a 3 percent donation to their charity of choice.

So, check out the shop, buy some gear and help your fundraising efforts. Read the story here.

And also in the news, kudos to PMCer Paul Frazier, the Braintree Chief of Police, who was one of the honorees at the Jimmy Fund Golf Appreciation Night for his dedication to all sorts of fundraising for the Jimmy Fund over the years. Here’s the Patriot Ledger story.

  1. Thank you for publishing this link. We are really looking forward to helping each rider reach their goals.

    One thing to note is that we over bikes that range in price from $1,200 on up. There was a misquote in the article.

    Good luck riders! -Marty

  2. The article also did not mention that Fit Werx has two locations – one in Peabody, MA and one in Waitsfield, VT. We’d be happy to help PMCers at either location.

    Details on the program can be found at http://www.fitwerx.com/fitwerx_gives_back.html.

    Thank you again and best of success to all PMC riders in 2009!
