I'm running this 5k for Maine Cancer Foundation and fundraising (at least) $100 for several reasons:

I've witnessed the impact of cancer a lot through my life, and I've seen it way too often in the last 6 months. So, I've decided to take this opportunity to run toward a cure. Any donation helps. Thank you.
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.
