Officer Hogan to ride Pan Mass Challenge 11th time

The following plea seeking support for his longtime effort in the Pan Mass Challnge (PMC) is from Officer Mike Hogan and K9s of the Arlington Police Department.Officer Mike Hogan with Eiko

This August, I am proud to say, I will have the privilege of riding in the Pan Mass Challenge for the 11th time as a member of the Arlington Angels Team.

I will be riding for my wife, Nancy, who was diagnosed with breast cancer 10 years ago and received treatment at Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

I now know firsthand how important it is to raise money for DFCI, so it can continue its research for life saving cancer treatments.

I will also be riding for my sister-in-law Colleen Lombard, who also received treatment for breast cancer at Dana Farber.

During this ride and my training, I will also be riding in honor of Catherine Malatesta, who lost her courageous battle with cancer and was a shining star in our community and her memory continues on through her scholarship fund . #cattitude.

I will also be riding for Patrick Doherty, who lost his courageous battle to cancer and my friend Lt. Dan Kelly, who lost his battle to this horrible disease.

Part of the PMC is the commitment to raise $6,000 -- to help fight the battle against cancer. Cancer is a devastating disease which, unfortunately, affects each of us at some point in our lives.

I would like to ask for a donation to meet my fund-raising goal. I know that because of the pandemic, this is a difficult year for many people. Anything is greatly appreciated.

Last year I broke $100,000 of total money that I've raised for Dana Farber over my years doing the PMC.

All thanks to you. But Dana Farber needs this money to continue the fight against cancer.

Please click on the link below to make an online donation. Alternatively, you can send a check directly to me (address below) payable to PMC/Jimmy Fund. One hundred percent of your tax-deductible donation goes directly to the Jimmy Fund at Dana Farber Cancer Institute to help all of its patients with clinical care and cancer research. Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated.

Mike Hogan and , K9 Eiko, Arlington Police Dept.
76 Warren St., Arlington, MA 02474

Please donate to my ride by clicking one of these links:

The PMC's tax ID /EIN number is 04-2746912.

The Pan-Mass Challenge only uses your personal information to thank you and will not share it with any other organizations.

This plea was published Monday, April 3, 2023, based on an email from Officer Hogan.
