Both OSI and our employees are proud of the support we provide to our communities, as well as the fight against cancer.
The people of OSI take pride in the support we provide to the communities in which we live, and the medical community that we serve. As an organization and as individuals, we strive to make a positive impact on the world and our fellow human beings by giving generously of our time, abilities and money.
Established in 1980, the PMC has grown considerably and consistently from its modest beginnings into an event that draws 6,000 cyclists from 41 states and eight countries. Today, the Pan-Mass Challenge raises more money than any other athletic fundraising event in the country. The PMC generates more than 50% of the Jimmy Fund's annual revenue and it is Dana-Farber's single largest contributor. Over the past 35 years, PMC cyclists have ridden to raise and contribute $455 million to cancer research.
Team OSI participated in 2015 for the third consecutive year. On the first weekend in August, the OSI team joined 6,000 cyclists in the PMC ride.
Each member of the company team committed to train, raise a minimum of $4,500, give up a weekend and travel to Massachusetts to ride 188 miles over two days from Sturbridge MA. to Provincetown MA. Riding for Team OSI were Garrett Mulhall, Regional Director, Phil Podmore, Founder and Board Member, Thomas “Bud” Ghegan, Board Member, Jay Jason, Board Member, Troy Kenyon, Board Member, JD White, Chairman of the Board, and Richard J. Hall, President and CEO.
Total funds raised this year will exceed $50,000! OSI is proud to share the team’s accomplishment.
