With the health and safety of our community being our priority, we've made the decision to cancel this weekend's Champion the Cure Challenge paddle event.
If you were planning on joining us and would still like to be out on the water this weekend, consider taking The Challenge virtually on your own favorite lake, pond, river, or stream. By taking The Challenge in your own special way, you'll be supporting Maine individuals and families whose lives have been changed forever by cancer.
We're grateful for your support of cancer care in Maine during what has been a challenging 18 months for so many. Thanks to YOU, patients and families continue to find comfort in knowing that when they hear the words "you have cancer," they won't be fighting alone.
