We had such an amazing time last summer! 

We got to meet more than 800 of you at the Twilight 5K for a beautiful sunset walk/run AND we raised over $150,000 to fight cancer in Maine!

We want to do it again and we hope you'll join us: Thursday, June 11th at 7pm on the same beautiful running course in South Portland.

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.

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":

Falmouth, Maine. Maine Cancer Foundation has announced $325,229 in awards to ten Maine organizations, including an effort to bring a revolutionary lung cancer screening technology to four Maine hospitals.

Known as “low-dose CT scans” (LDCT), the new technique allows doctors to detect lung tumors at stage one and stage two, a time when treatments are more effective. Historically, most lung cancers are detected at stage three or four when obvious symptoms appear and the odds successful treatment are slim.
