We're Funding the Fight

We're Funding the Fight Against Cancer in Maine

Since 1976 Maine Cancer Foundation has worked diligently to provide grant funding for cancer research, education and patient support programs here in our state.  Whether you choose to make a one-time gift or a lasting endowment, you can be confident that your donation is directed to effective organizations leading the fight against cancer in Maine.

Important Notice: Mary's Walk & the Kerrymen 5K have been re-scheduled for Sunday, March 29th. Same time, same place. 

The Bad News:

If you live in Maine (heck, if you live anywhere north of Florida) you know this has been one of the toughest winters on record with truly epic amounts of snow. Despite the heroic efforts of the Public Works Department, it looks like the Mary's Walk/Kerrymen 5K route cannot be safely cleared in time. With more than 3,500 people attending, proper road conditions are absolutely vital. The Mary's Walk committee has conferred with the city managers, the police department, public works and Thornton Academy staff, and we have made the decision to postpone the event.

Still stuck on the waitlist? Here's another chance!

Coast 93.1 morning show host (and triathlete!) Eva Matteson will be giving away additional Tri for a Cure entires between February 16 and March 2!

Tune in and you can still get a spot in this year's Triathlon.

Wow! We just passed the $100,000 fundraising mark in record time! We can't thank you enough for your help fundraising for Mary's Walk & the Kerrymen 5K.  

There's just over a month to go until we meet up in Saco, and we're really hoping to break our record from last year. With over 3,000 walkers and runners in the race, we could meet our goal in no time if everyone asked one friend to support them with a donation.

We also have a sneak peak of our top-fundraiser prize that just came in. Check out this cool "shamrock" Sea Bag":
