2023 Champion the Cure Challenge

Fishing for a Cure

Team Fishing for a Cure celebrates the life of Brandon Washburn. In May 2013, at the age of 25, Brandon was diagnosed with cancer. He battled cancer with admirable strength and courage and was very passionate about giving back even while facing his battle. One way Brandon thought about others and was committed to making a difference in the fight against cancer was by starting Team Fishing for a Cure in the summer of 2013. Brandon heard about Champion the Cure Challenge while receiving treatment at the Lafayette Family Cancer Center and wanted to give back by supporting local cancer research. As Brandon’s cancer progressed Brandon expressed his wishes for his team to continue. With amazing support from family and friends his wish and his memory will continue to live on.

**Since 2013 Team Fishing for a Cure has raised over $115,000**

We believe that by working together, cancer doesn’t stand a chance. Champion the Cure Challenge is how we make a difference. The Challenge is the only event in our region whose sole purpose is to support local cancer research and patient care. The money we raise will stay in our communities to fund care and research at the Lafayette Family Cancer Institute and Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center.

We’re proud to be part of a community that’s committed to defeating cancer in Maine because we know that together, we can do great things for those affected by cancer. Will you join us?
