2018 Twilight 5K

On Thursday, June 7th I'm participating in the Twilight 5K to benefit Maine Cancer Foundation for the 6th year. I'm excited to have my whole family join me to help raise money for this wonderful organization. I lost my mother to lung cancer in 2014. Increased screening may have afforded her more time with us. The Foundation supports programs that improve and increase early detection and screening efforts. 100% of funds raised by the Foundation are used to benefit the people of Maine. Please consider a donation of any size. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! 

XOXO Krista, Chris, Ava & Renner

 

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.

Our Goals:

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.

Our Mission:

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.
