It seems like only yesterday it was winter and we were shoveling the sidewalk on a daily basis. But now its Spring, the trees are blooming, and I have decided that I need to get my butt out of the house and run for a good cause. I am running to support the Maine Cancer Foundation and am dedicating this race to all the families in Maine affected by cancer. Specifically, I am dedicating this race (and many runs to come) to my dear friend Renata who passed away from metastasized breast cancer last year.
Please consider a donation of any size. Every dollar counts! And if you have time, please come cheer on the runners at the Twilight 5K on Thursday, June 7, 2018.
About Maine Cancer Foundation:
Maine Cancer Foundation was started in 1976 by a group of concerned citizens eager to do more for Maine in the fight against cancer. We lead a state-wide effort to foster and grow the most promising and effective cancer-fighting efforts available to the people of Maine through a combination of grant-based financial support and coalition building.
We are proud of our record of accomplishment, and we invite you to join us in this grand vision: a future where cancer is no longer a threat to our loved ones.
Foster Prevention Practices: The best cancer is the one that never occurs. Prevention strategies have a proven impact on cancer incidence rates. The Foundation supports state-wide prevention efforts, focusing on smoking, healthy lifestyles and preventative care.
Increase Cancer Screening: Early detection saves lives. Several cancers have well-developed treatments but all cancers have better patient outcomes when detected early. The Foundation supports programs that improve and increase early detection and screening efforts.
Improve Patient Outcomes: Maine lives matter. The Foundation supports efforts to improve patient outcomes through patient impact programs, the adoption of new technologies and investment in scientific research for the next generation of treatments.
Maine Cancer Foundation is dedicated to reducing cancer incidence and mortality rates in Maine. 100% of funds raised by the Foundation are used to benefit the people of Maine.
