    Thank you for participating in this year's Pat’s Pedaling Pack 100K Ride and Golf Outing which this year was dubbed “The Million Dollar Ride”. Whether you rode, donated, sponsored, volunteered, golfed, or helped out in some other way, we appreciate everything you do. Thanks to all of you we raised an incredible $280,000! This is a tremendous result, our best ever, and it’s because of all of you! Since inception of the ride in 2014, we have now raised a cumulative amount of over ONE MILLION DOLLARS!!! Donations are still being accepted, thank you!

    These funds are extremely important to the mission of Pat Mac’s Pack as we continue to fund critical brain tumor research and provide assistance directly to the families of young children who are battling cancer.

    We hope to see you all again next year for the 2023 version of the Pat Mac Pack Ride on Friday June 23rd, 2023




    Thank you for joining us in the Pat's Pedaling Pack 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 in the fight against pediatric cancer.

    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.

    Pat Mac's Pedaling Pack originated in the spring of 2014 when a group of men from St. Barnabas Parish where Patrick McNamara attended grammar school chose to change their annual bike ride into a fundraiser to honor Patrick. With the blessing of Pat's parents, Tom and Dee McNamara, Pat's Pedaling Pack was created. This year, we are thrilled to hit the road once again to raise money for pediatric brain tumor research and to assist young cancer patients and their families. Women and men 21 years and older are invited to participate in the ride.

    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. In 2014, 44 riders raised $25,000. The tremendous effort has grown every year. In 2021, 194 riders raised an amazing $240,000! This year, our goal is to raise $300,000, and we believe we can make it happen with your generous support!
