Thank you for joining us in the Pat's Pedaling Pack fundraising campaign. Whether you are a rider, a rider sponsor or a supporter of our mission, your generous donation is making an especially big impact in the fight against pediatric cancer.


Pat Mac’s Pack honors the winning spirit and life of Patrick McNamara who died at the age of 13 from a pediatric brain tumor. He was the child of Tom and Dee McNamara, the organizers of Pat Mac’s Pack.


Pat Mac's Pedaling Pack originated in the spring of 2014 when a group of men from St. Barnabas Parish where Patrick McNamara attended grammar school chose to change their annual bike ride into a fundraiser to honor Patrick. With the blessing of Pat's parents, Tom and Dee McNamara, Pat's Pedaling Pack was created. This year, we are thrilled to be able to hit the road as a pack once again to raise money for pediatric brain tumor research and to assist young cancer patients and their families. Women and men 21 years and older are invited to participate in the ride.




Registration for the ride includes a 2021 rider t-shirt, trail markers, SAG stops, a post ride party that includes food, beverages, music and fun, and a donation to Pat Mac's Pack to help children and their families facing challenges with pediatric brain tumors. 


The rider fee is $150.00 until August 31st. Beginning September 1st, the rider fee will increase to $175.00. Registration includes your

·      Rider Fee Payment

·      Rider Waiver

·      2021 Ride T-shirt (Must be worn by all riders to show your support!)

·      Post Ride Party


To register, you must be 21 years or older by the day of the ride. In addition, you can also sign up for our golf event at noon, September 18, in Michigan City (golf payment paid later)

Once you register you will receive an email with a link to set up your personal fundraising page. This email will also include important fundraising information and other ride details. The page is simple to set up, and contains sample copy that you can edit or embellish with your own personal reasons for participating. Each rider is asked to raise a minimum of $500 to support our cause and hopefully much more! Please remember "Why We Ride": To raise funds for pediatric brain tumor research and to provide direct assistance to childhood cancer patients and their families.


Now's the perfect time to sign-up and get started!


We appreciate your efforts, your commitment and your generosity and look forward to riding with you with you on September 17. Together we are making a difference.


Our goal is to help as many children as possible in their battle with an unfair disease. We are committed to never give up the fight. 100% of all funds raised are used to support pediatric brain tumor research and provide funding to financially distressed families of patients suffering from pediatric brain cancer. In 2014, 44 riders raised $25,000, which grew to $185,000 raised by an incredible 194 riders in 2019! This year, our goal is to raise $300,000, and we believe we can make it happen with your generous support!
