This year, Team Shawmut raised $118,000 and counting — breaking its fundraising goal once again — and accumulating $1.9 million in total fundraising since the team’s inception. The money raised directly supports the research being conducted by Dana-Farber’s Dr. Christopher Sweeney, who rode with Team Shawmut for the eighth consecutive year.
Team Shawmut — which also includes CEO Les Hiscoe, Shawmut employees, friends, and patients — has consistently raised more than $100,000 per year to support Dr. Sweeney’s efforts, enabling him and his team to create a unique database of cancer specimens, discover key causes of incurable cancer, and test a new drug designed to make standard therapies more effective.
“Supporting the PMC year-after-year is an inspiring and motivating tradition, and I am grateful for the continued support and commitment Team Shawmut receives from our employees, friends, family, and partners,” Hiscoe said. “With this year’s ride marking the 15th year Shawmut has participated, it is more empowering than ever to raise funds for life-saving cancer research and do our part in the fight against cancer.”
