Vertical Systems Group Supports Fight Against Cancer

We support the fight against cancer through donations in association with several Boston-based organizations. Dana Farber Cancer Institute is committed to The Jimmy Fund for providing high quality treatment while developing tomorrow’s cures through cutting-edge research. The Jimmy Fund, which solely supports Dana-Farber, has been integral to the successful treatment of once-incurable cancers for more than sixty years.

Pan Mass Challenge 2019 – August 3rd and 4th

One of the top Jimmy Fund events is The Pan-Massachusetts Challenge (PMC), an annual bicycle ride that spans the state each August. The PMC raises more money than any other athletic fundraising event in the country and 100% of every rider-raised dollar is contributed to fighting cancer. The PMC has raised more than $650 million since 1980.

Vertical Systems Group’s Erin Dunne, Director of Research, is an active PMC rider – 2019 marks her eighth year riding with Team Longevity. Cycling nearly 200 miles over 2-days on her cool bike, Big Red, Erin dedicates her ride in honor of friends and family members touched by cancer.

The PMC generates 60% of the Jimmy Fund’s annual revenue and it is Dana-Farber’s single largest contributor. This year’s goal is $60 million.
