Sponsor Seth's ride for cancer in the PMC Seth Dillingham, a weblogger and creator of the Free-Conversant weblogging service, has been training for months to ride in the Pan-Mass Challenge this weekend. The PMC hopes to raise $16 Million for the Jimmy Fund in support of cancer research and treatment. 4000 riders are registered to ride the approximately 200 mile route, and each rider needs a $2500 sponsorship to qualify for the ride. Seth needs about $750 more to qualify, but there are only a few days left to raise this amount. Please donate!

Or just donate directly to cancer research without needing an extravagant event with no direct relationship to donating in order to prompt you.

Cancer + Bicycle = Lance (Armstrong Foundation)

last month I did the london - brighton cycle ride for Cancer Research.

16,000 people down British country lanes. It was mental.

on a side note, I don't agree with using a FPP to ask for donations.

What Wingy said. I've always wondered what happens if someone fails their challenge, if they don't walk those 10 miles or complete that marathon. Do they have to go back round all their sponsors, return the money and apologise?
