2016 Pan-Mass Challenge Gregor Trinkaus-Randall 1964

Some of you know that our daughter, Jennifer, has been battling cancer for four years. As of last May she has been on an experimental, clinical trial of immunotherapy as well as chemotherapy. She is still working teaching K-1 autistic children and living as normal a life as possible. However, she is still getting chemo, and that means that she loses her appetite for weeks on end. She is a fighter and this winter was given permission to get back into skiing. It is a joy seeing the smile on her face when she is on the slopes. As a former racer, she loves being there. She is also jogging whenever she has a chance – even in sub-zero weather.

Because of the effort and fight that she is putting up, Vickery and I have again committed to raising money for cancer research by riding in the two-day 2016 Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC). On the first weekend in August, I will join 6,200 cyclists in the PMC ride, an annual bike-a-thon that raises money for research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston.

Frequently Asked Questions

Upon graduating from Deerfield, alumni enter a diverse network of former Deerfield students. Deerfield alumni have ventured into almost every area of employment, and many are at the top of their respective fields. The advantages of this vast network are numerous and significant, as every member of the Deerfield family receives the following:

Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are regional events in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on regional engagement.
