$200K raised for Pan-Mass Challenge

| August 7, 2018

Boston – Shawmut Design and Construction participated in the 2018 Pan-Mass Challenge, marking the eleventh straight year the firm has participated in the two-day bike-a-thon. This year, Team Shawmut raised $200,000 and counting, accumulating more than $1,300,000 in total fundraising since the team’s inception. The money raised will directly support the research being conducted by Dana-Farber’s Dr. Christopher Sweeney, who rode with Team Shawmut for the fifth year in a row.

Once again, Team Shawmut drew a large group, including CEO Les Hiscoe, 32 Shawmut employees and friends, Dr. Sweeney, and three of his patients. The team rode from Sturbridge to Provincetown to increase awareness and funding for cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Shawmut also sponsored the Brewster PMC water stop and staffed it with more than 25 passionate employee volunteers who cheered on the riders as they came through.

Team Shawmut has consistently raised more than $100,000 a year to support Dr. Sweeney’s efforts, enabling him to create a unique database of cancer specimens that allows his team to find the key causes of incurable cancer and to test a new drug designed to make standard therapies more effective.
