Ian Hannafin has been fighting to find a cure for cancer since neuroblastoma stole his best friend, Joseph Messina, more than half a decade ago. It was then that Hannafin decided to create his own fundraising event, which has raised more than $15,000, and he has been in charge of running it ever since. Hannafin, now a rising senior at Loyola High, is only 17. He started the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge Parkton Kids Ride in 2008, when he was just 13. The event is one of 35 PMC Kids Rides, held mainly in New England.
