Natick kids are invited to ride their bikes to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. This year, 35 Pan-Massachusetts Kids Rides will be held across New England, with over 6,000 bicyclists traveling between one and 26 miles for the cause.
The Natick Kids Ride event was started by Natick residents Missy McCauly, a PMC cyclist and Glynn Hawley, PMC director of provisions.
About 250 children between ages 2 and 12 are expected to participated, according to a release. The Natick route will take riders through the Belkin Family Lookout Farm on May 15. Participants must raise at least $25 and pay a $10 entrance fee.
There will be a party after the ride, which includes face painting, crafts, silent auction, raffles and healthy snacks.
