PhotoHunt: Colorful

This photo was taken at the PMC (Pan Mass Challenge) bike race, a fundraiser for cancer research. A few years in a row, my closest friend and her crew dedicated training and the race to all cancer survivors, of which she is one. The ride route encompasses 192 (two-way, longest ride) or the shortest of routes which is 80+ miles of cycling.
"This summer, each of the 5,000-plus cyclists will commit to raising between $500 and $4,200 for the privilege of being a member of the PMC team. " Last year 100% of all fundraising went to the Dana Faber Cancer Institute, Jimmy Fund, of Boston.

Hi M, fantastic choice for this week's theme. I love the colors of the jerseys worn by the cyclists. This is a really great cause and that's so wonderful that your friend who is herself a cancer survivor participates in such a challenging event.

Have a wonderful weekend.
