BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — After being postponed because of a surge in Covid-19 cases in Boston, a new date has been set for the Pan-Mass Challenge Winter Cycle.

Officials said, the Winter Cycle: Spring Edition is now scheduled for Sunday, June 6.

The Pan-Mass Challenge raises money for cancer research at Dana-Farber. The original event was scheduled for January 30 at Fenway Park.

The cycle is usually an indoor event because it takes place in the winter, but cyclists will have the opportunity to ride on the field at Fenway or virtually from home in June. However, this all depends on final approval from the city.

Organizers also announced an anonymous donor will double the money raised for the event with a 1:1 matching grant, up to $2 million.

“We are grateful for this generous donor recognizing the importance of PMC Winter Cycle participants' fundraising efforts and our commitment to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute,” said PMC Founder and Executive Director Billy Starr.
