Billy Starr
Wellesley, Massachusetts
First PMC: 1980

At age twenty-two, just out of college, Billy Starr saw the world as an infinite, alluring expanse. Three months later his mother was diagnosed with cancer that would take her life. "My world shut down," Starr recalls. "For a long time, I didn't think or look past the weekend." Instead of following an adventurous spirit to Argentina or Nepal, Starr returned home to Newton for the crisis, and remained to comfort his father in the aftermath. In 1980, six years after his mother's death, Starr enlisted 35 fellow adventurers to join him in a quixotic two-day pedal from Springfield to Provincetown to raise money for the Jimmy Fun. "I never doubted that I could make things work," says Starr, still at the helm of the nation's first, finest, and most successful bicycle fundraiser. "The only thing that would put an end to it would have been if I'd quit. And I wasn't about to do that."

"The power of an idea."
