Babson College hopes to put 400 kids with bikes on the streets of Wellesley this Saturday. The event, billed as the “First Annual Wellesley Kids Ride,” will raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund.

The money will be contributed through the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, the 27-year-old cancer fundraising event that annually draws more than more than 5,000 adult cyclists who ride across the state every August. The Wellesley kids' ride will feature different bike routes suitable for children ages 3 to 14, organizers said.

Registration for the kids’ ride costs $10 and begins at 9 a.m. Participants are asked to raise a minimum contribution depending on the child's age: $25 for toddlers and children up to 6, $50 for kids 7 to 11, and $100 for kids age 12 to 14.

Anyone seeking more information is urged to visit the event site online.
