Teaming up for Pan-Mass Challenge Kids Ride


Preschoolers can ride their tricycles, bikes and big wheel riders or can be pulled in a wagon on the “Tykes on Trikes” obstacle course on the Boutwell School tennis courts from 9 to 10 a.m.

In the time between rides, participants can enjoy a free hot dog, face painting, a DJ, raffles and other refreshments while cheering on the cyclists.

All riders are required to register on the event website (, click on Wilmington-Andover ride) for a $10 fee, and raise a minimum of $25. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Those raising $250 and above will be recognized as a “Heavy Hitter” and will receive a special prize from the PMC. The three participants who bring in the most will receive a prize donated by the Wilmington Kiwanis Club. All registrants will receive an event T-shirt, water bottle and goodie bag.

A pre-registration day will be held on Saturday, May 18, from 9 to 11 a.m. at Boutwell Elementary School to allow people to pick up their goodie bags and avoid lines at registration the following day.

For more information, or to make a donation in support of the ride, go to and click on Wilmington-Andover ride or check out Pan-Mass Challenge Wilmington/Andover Kids Bike Ride 2013 on Facebook.
