List of events we participate in
Pan Mass Challenge
“The Pan-Mass Challenge is a Massachusetts-based bike-a-thon that raises more money for charity than any other single athletic fundraising event in the country. Always held the first weekend in August, the PMC raises funds for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, a world leader in adult and pediatric cancer treatment and research.
Each summer, thousands of riders and volunteers from 43 states and 12 countries participate in the PMC, all with a common goal: to find a cure for cancer.
100 percent of all rider-raised funds go directly to cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund. The PMC is Dana-Farber’s single largest supporter and is more than 60 percent of the Jimmy Fund’s annual revenue. Since 1980, the PMC has raised $900 million for Dana-Farber.”
David Klein and Erik Radermacher participated in the 2023 Pan Mass Challenge. We volunteered as massage therapists in 2019 and wanted to be future riders. This year, David and Erik raised $18,000 for Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Jimmy Fund Clinic and still looking to break $20k. Thank you to all of our donors to make this possible!
Dinner For Champions
Sponsored by Comeback Physical Therapy, this annual event helps create memorable holiday experiences to lower income families and children. Each year we receive hundreds of toys and donations to allow each child to meet Santa and choose 1 toy from the “toy room”. Children and their families come to this event and are provided a dinner, apparel, gifts, and entertainment.

It will consist of live performances by local and international artists, kiosks selling typical Puerto Rican food, local arts and crafts, mechanical rides and a variety of activities for the entire family.

“The Caribbean American Carnival Association of Boston has become the economic boom for many minority-owned and operated small businesses in the inner city. The carnival has its roots in the Caribbean Carnival tradition, which originated in Trinidad and Tobago and has since spread throughout the Caribbean and around the world. Ken Bonaparte Mitchell founded CACAB in 1973 with the support of Mayor Kevin White, and launched the first Boston Caribbean Parade. The carnival originally took place in Franklin Park, a large park in the heart of Boston, and included a parade, live music, and traditional Caribbean food and drinks.”
