"Financials" ride there bikes for cancer research.
John Hancock’s Funds CEO and MFS’s Investment Manager were among those riding in this past weekend’s Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, a bike-a-thon for cancer research . The organizers who have been putting on this ride since 1980, say that the 4300 cyclists , who travel between 70 and 192 miles in two days is the nation’s most cost-efficient athletic fund raising event. 99 cents of every raised dollar goes directly to the "Jimmy Fund".Since 1980 they have contributed more that $145 million, not counting this year, to Boston’s Dana – Faber Cancer Institute.
MFS surveyed their employees to find where they wanted their charitable donations to go, and it was Health and in particular Cancer Research that won out. 45 employees from MFS participated in the bike ride.
