Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) Chairman Jeff Hirsch will be pedaling across Massachusetts to raise money for a New England cancer charity known as The Jimmy Fund.

According to a press release, The Jimmy Fund supports Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, raising funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research. The bike-a-thon, called the PMC Pan-Mass Challenge, runs from Sturbridge to Provincetown.

Hirsch, owner of Campers Inn, is joining the manager of his Raynham location, Brian Sullivan, who completed this challenging 192 mile bike-a-thon two years ago. Sullivan’s participation in the ride brought in $5,600 in donations from Campers Inn in 2011. This year, Hirsch aims to raise $12,000 from their combined participation on Aug. 3-4. To date, the annual event has raised upwards of $300,000.

“Brian and I know that all our friends and associates in the RV industry wish us well,” said Hirsch, making a pitch for support of this charity event. “Whatever and however you help out, you know we really appreciate it.”

The Jimmy Fund is a well-known New England Charity, founded in 1948, supporting the fight against cancer at Boston’s Dana Farber Cancer Institute. The Jimmy Fund has been integral to the successful treatment for once-incurable childhood cancers and the PMC Pan-Mass Challenge is just one of more than 500 events that benefit The Jimmy Fund.
