Pedal for Pat

Pedal for Pat

Thank you for joining us in the Pedal for Pat fundraising campaign. Whether you are a rider, a rider sponsor or a supporter of our mission, your generous donation is making an especially big impact during these challenging times.

Pat Mac’s Pack honors the winning spirit and life of Patrick McNamara who died at the age of 13 from a pediatric brain tumor. He was the child of Tom and Dee McNamara, the organizers of Pat Mac’s Pack.

Our goal is to help as many children as possible in their battle with an unfair disease. We are committed to never give up the fight. 100% of all funds raised are used to support pediatric brain tumor research and provide funding to financially distressed families of patients suffering from pediatric brain cancer.

Like many events in 2020, the Pat’s Pedaling Pack 100K Fundraising Ride was cancelled due to the coronavirus. We can wait until 2021 for the next 100K Ride, but children and families suffering from the effects of Pediatric Brain Cancer can’t wait until next year for our help.

So instead of our 100K group ride, Pat Mac’s Pack is asking riders along with their families and friends to continue our fundraising tradition on the weekend of September 11-13, 2020 when we “Pedal for Pat”.

The Pedal for Pat ride celebrates the life and winning spirit of Patrick McNamara who died at age 13 from a pediatric brain tumor disease known as ependymoma. It is designed so you along with family, children or friends can plan your own ride route and the day and time you choose to ride.

Here’s how it works:

1) Choose a day, or days to ride on Friday-Sunday, September 11-13.
2) Make a donation on the Pat Mac’s Pack website. Encourage your friends and family to support your ride by also donating.
3) Post a picture or video of your bike ride on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter tagging Pat Mac’s Pack using the hashtag #PedalForPat. This will help us recognize your generous participation and continue to build awareness for Pediatric Brain Cancer.


Please note: This ride is completely do it yourself. There are no organized rides, days or times. Just get out there and ride anytime from September, 11-13. And donate to Pat Mac’s Pack!

And remember “Why We Ride”: To raise funds for pediatric brain tumor research and to provide direct assistance to childhood cancer patients and their families.

Not able to ride? Not a problem. You can still help children in need by making a donation.

So, join us the weekend of September 11-13, when we Pedal for Pat.

Thank you!
