"There was plenty of energy and excitement at the House of Blues in Boston on Saturday night, as one of the nations best known cancer fundraisers celebrated a major milestone. This summer, nearly 5,000 riders pedaled across Massachusetts in the 30th Pan Mass Challenge. Saturday night, the PMC presented a check to The Jimmy Fund. The event started small, but quickly grew into an organized, efficient raiser of funds for cancer research. ""What a wonderful road its been,"" PMC founder Billy Starr said. ""The PMC has provided a vehicle for so many people to find a way to fund cancer research."" On Saturday night, Starr announced that the 2009 PMC raised an appropriate $30 million, bringing the 30-year total to $270 million for cancer research."
