A heartwarming story in today's Boston Globe about a brother and sister from Rochester who will be riding in this weekend's Pan Massachusetts Challenge.

19 year old Sarah Marchisio and her 17 year old brother Christian will ride in memory of their parents. Their mom, Nancy Marchisio died three years ago from cervical cancer. Their father, Richard, was the owner of Marchisio Insurance in New Bedford. Richard died last year at the age of 49 from a heart attack.


The 190 mile ride starts in Sturbridge and ends in Provincetown. The their team (Team oN A Mission) is made up of nine college students, two seniors at Old Rochester Regional High School, and Bill Tilden, the ORR's athletic director.
