Worcester Police officer Jonathan Daige, was honored by the Boston Red Sox during their June 18 game with the Seattle Mariners as one of 50 Living Proof Pan Mass Challenge cyclists. 

Daige was specifically honored in the middle of the 4th inning while standing on top of the Red Sox dugout. 

Prior to the game, cyclists rode their bikes around the field to the Red Sox dugout  where they lined up to watch the first pitch.

Daige is a sergeant in the Massachusetts Army reserve and served two tours in the Iraq War before joining the Worcester Police Department in 2006. 

He has fought three difference cancers and has undergone six surgeries and is now approaching his two year  anniversary of being cancer free. 

With the Worcester Police, Daige has helped organize a group of riders called the "Thin Blue Ride." 

The team of officers is preparing to joing almost 6,000 cyclists taking part in the Pan Mass Challenge, an annual bike-a-thon across the state which raises money for life saving cancer research and treatment. 

Over the past 35 years, cyclists have raised and contributed $455 million to cancer research.
