L.E.K. Boston and the Pan-Mass Challenge - Part 1

L.E.K. is actively involved in the community in many ways, but one of the Boston office’s biggest commitments is with the Pan-Mass Challenge. The Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) is a 163-mile bike ride across Massachusetts that takes place over the course of two days. The PMC raises funds for life-saving cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Since its inception, the PMC has contributed more than $455 million to Dana-Farber, making it the biggest athletic fundraiser in the country.

 

This year marks the ninth year that L.E.K. has had a team and this time around the L.E.K. team will have 31 riders! Since partnering with the PMC, L.E.K. has raised a total of $1.2 million. This is thanks to the fundraising efforts of individual L.E.K. riders, the managing directors and the company as a whole.

 

In order to amass such a donation, L.E.K. spends the year raising money. Our largest event, however, is the PMC Auction and Raffle, which happened just a couple weeks ago. For the annual event, donated experiences and prizes are auctioned to the highest bidder, or in some cases, bidders. Some of the highlights from this year were:

• Whitewater rafting in the Berkshires
• Flying lesson
• Red Sox tickets
• Newport, RI beach house rentals

 

This year, we raised ~$50,000 thanks to the generosity of the members of our office! The ride will take place over the first weekend of August, so stay tuned for part 2 in which I’ll chronicle the weekend and my ride in the Pan-Mass Challenge.
