R. Murphy is the proud sponsor of two riders in the Pan Mass Challenge, better known as the PMC. This incredibly successful event takes place August 4-5, 2012. From their website:
The Pan-Massachusetts Challenge
The PMC is a pioneer in the athletic fundraising event industry and today raises more money for charity than any other in the country. On August 4 and 5, 2012, 5,500 cyclists will travel one of 11 routes, logging between 25 and 190 miles over one or two days, through 46 Massachusetts cities and towns. Their collective goal is to raise $36 million for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund and bring the organization's 33-year fundraising total to more than $374 million. For more information about the PMC, call 800-WE-CYCLE or visit www.pmc.org.
Good luck, John and Marcie!
We would also like to call your attention to another organization in need of just about anything you can donate. The United Yokefellow Ministry -- from their website:
The UYM is a service oriented organization, dedicated to helping others (and other organizations) while providing programs and services that make a contributing difference in the lives of those we serve and their families. One of our main goals is to create, structure and implement those programs that strongly support the “ageing at home” philosophy as we are committed to helping seniors, the physically and mentally challenged, and others in need by providing them with the means to remain in the familiar, safe environment of their own homes (or homes we rehabilitate and offer) while maintaining their safety and dignity. http://www.uymcares.org
We received a request for cutlery from one of their members who recently, single-handedly processed about 800 pounds of fish donated by local fishermen to help feed the community in need!! That is some feat! We gladly sent them a couple dozen knives. Please check them out on the link above.
