On Sunday August 3, Brewster firefighter Jim Clarke completed the grueling Sturbridge to Provincetown route of the Pan-Mass Bike Challenge. It was an emotional and uplifting moment for his father (Captain John Clarke of the Harwich Fire Department) and our members when Jim arrived at Fire Headquarters for a quick photo session with his brother firefighters before heading off to finish the race. The PMC is a popular annual bike challenge that raises money for cancer research. Jim dedicated his ride to several family members who have or are currently battling this acute disease. Our department is honored to have Jim as one of our members and we thank him for his self-less dedication and commitment he displayed in his effort to support cancer research.
