I race for my dad, Mark G. Weiss 1951-2001. This is my second year at Tri For A Cure and I'm SO excited. This event is awesome- to meet others whos lives have been effected by cancer in some way, to push myself harder than ever, and to know that every bead of sweat is going towards fighting cancer. 150% worth it.
I've opted out of all the prizes they give you for fundraising, so 100% of your donations are going to fight cancer. Thank you for your support, and see you there!
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. They 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.
Their goals are to:
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.100% of the money raised for MCF stays in the state of Maine, offering critical services close to home, and making a difference in the lives of our friends, families, and neighbors.
