Former American Superconductor executive Angelo Robert Santamaria is an accomplished manufacturing professional with global experience spanning the water management and alternative energy sectors. In addition to overseeing manufacturing operations at firms such as Oasys Water and American Superconductor Corporation, Angelo Santamaria has also dedicated much of his time to philanthropic causes like The Jimmy Fund.
Since 1948, The Jimmy Fund has leveraged the support of communities throughout Massachusetts and beyond to provide millions of dollars in funding to Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and its ongoing efforts to advance cancer treatment. An official charity of organizations including the Boston Red Sox and the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, The Jimmy Fund receives donations from a variety of philanthropic groups and events, but its most significant contributor remains the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC).
The Pan-Mass Challenge is a state-wide charity bicycle race consisting of 12 routes that traverse the state of Massachusetts. Since its inception in 1980, the event has grown into the largest athletic charity event in the United States, raising more funds than any other charity athletic competition. The annual bike-a-thon attracts thousands of cyclists, donors, sponsors, and volunteers each year and has raised $547 million for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. It provides over half of the annual revenue collected by the Jimmy Fund, making it the largest organizational supporter of Dana-Farber’s groundbreaking work.
The 2017 Pan-Mass Challenge is slated to take place on August 5 and 6, 2017. For more information, visit www.pmc.org.
