Shawmut Design and Construction Breaks Pan-Mass Challenge Fundraising Goal for Third Year in a Row
BOSTON, MA Shawmut Design and Construction participated in the 2016 Pan-Mass Challenge, making it the ninth straight year the firm has partaken in the two-day bike-a-thon. This year, Team Shawmut raised $137,556 and counting. For the fifth straight year the money raised will directly support the research being conducted by Dana-Farber's Dr. Christopher Sweeney.
Team Shawmut included CEO Les Hiscoe and 23 Shawmut employees and friends, including Dr. Sweeney of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and three of his cancer patients. The team rode from Sturbridge, Massachusetts, to Provincetown, Massachusetts, to increase awareness and funding for cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Shawmut also sponsored the Brewster PMC water stop and staffed it with 20 enthusiastic volunteers who cheered on the riders as they came through.
"Every year it is amazing to see the amount of support our team receives from Shawmut employees," said Jim Scarpone, Director at Shawmut Design and Construction and Team Shawmut captain. "From riding to working at the Shawmut waterstop, the Pan-Mass Challenge always seems to bring out the best in our company."
