I have done triathlons before (long before children) and I have had friends who have participated in fundraisers before, but this time it is different. In the last 12 months 2 women who I consider friends, both from Scarborough, Maine, were diagnosed with breast cancer. This is an opportunity for me to really give to others, to raise funds that will benefit families more than any of us can imagine. Sure, I could write a check, but my friends "from away" need to know the strength of the Maine community. Please support me in my cause, as I participate in the 11th Annual Maine Cancer Foundation Tri for a Cure. Maine Cancer Foundation is committed to reducing cancer incidence and mortality rates in Maine, with 100% of funds raised by the Foundation used to benefit the people of Maine. They lead a state-wide effort to advance the most promising and effective cancer-fighting efforts available through a combination of grant-based financial support and coalition building. MCF's Challenge Cancer 2020 initiative is working to reduce cancer incidence and mortality in Maine 20% by 2020 through prevention, screening and early detection, and access to the highest quality care for every Mainer.
Every dollar counts! Please consider a donation. Cancer tries but we TRI harder!
