Gerry is riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge once again, and you can make a gift to the Jimmy Fund through him or any other rider by clicking here.
From Gerry's page on why he rides:
By the end of Day 2 of every Pan Mass Challenge, we’re sore, we’re tired, and we’re wondering if we might not ride again next year. But then we visit the kids at the Jimmy Fund Clinic, and we’re reminded once again what wimps and whiners we are. In there, you meet the real tough guys, the true heroes in the fight against pediatric cancer.
Oh, what kids like Eddie Rodriguez and Ian Cadden and Kyle D'Auteuil would give for a little chafing, a little soreness and a lot of sweat. What they would give to get out of the infusion room on a warm summer morning and just ride all day.
That is why more than 5,000 people will buckle up and ride in the 34th annual PMC on August 3 and 4: Because right now Eddie and Ian and Kyle can’t. Because every mile we ride and every dollar we raise gets us a little closer to a cure.
Check out a few behind the scenes videos from the show

The adorable Avalanna Routh, who was diagnosed at 9 months old with a rare brain cancer called AT/RT, passed away on Wednesday morning, September 26th, 2012. Listen to Dennis & Callahan react to the extremely sad news. You may remember her from when she joined the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon and proclaimed her love for Justin Bieber (click through for audio and video). In fact, Avalanna had the chance to "marry him" thanks to the Jimmy Fund.
As a result of an aggressive social media campaign, Avalanna was afforded the chance to meet her "husband," Justin Bieber this past year. She joined D&C in studio on Valentine's Day to talk about her special experience. A recap of that day is listed in the links below.
If you would like to make a donation to AT/RT research in memory of Avalanna, visit www.cureatrt.org. Thank you to the outpouring of support from all of our listeners and friends of the Dennis & Callahan Show. Listen to another D&C segment from Wednesday, September 26th as we relay messages from our listeners.
