Today’s Podcast on John Kerry and Champion Cyclist Greg LeMond Ride for Cancer Research

On Saturday, John Kerry rode the 111 mile bike race the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge to raise money for cancer research. 99 cents out of every dollar riders raise during the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge goes directly to the Jimmy Fund, which supports the life-saving cancer research of the Dana-Farber Institute in Massachusetts.

John Kerry joined over 4,500 riders from over 35 states on the ride, including 200 fellow cancer survivors. Last week, Kerry enlisted the community to financially support the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge. Together they raised over 51K online for the Jimmy Fund. Kerry finished the ride in 5:49:29.

Kerry, along with legendary champion cyclist Greg LeMond recorded this podcast from the ride site. The podcast starts with an interview with Greg LeMond, 3 time Tour de France winner, and then Senator Kerry speaks before and after the race.
