Bereaved families combine teams to fund research for cancer prevention and treatment. Bright Happy Power’s annual father-daughter Pan Mass Challenge team Sarah Doktor and Chris Doktor, who have been riding together for six years, now rides with the larger Team Kermit for the second time.
Along with the sparkly red “Oz” shoes visible on Chris and Sarah’s helmets, they’re sporting small green stuffed Kermit dolls. Chris and Sarah ride in remembrance of Jessie, and many other pediatric patients and adult patients who lived courageously and brilliantly, and died too soon. Team Kermit remembers their brother and son Jared. Jessica Doktor was particularly fond of wearing sparkly shoes, and Kermit is a reminder of Jared’s passions.Funds raised support the work of the Dana Farber Cancer Center.
