We are very excited to bring back the Twilight 5K Walk/Run to South Portland this summer.
We're also pleased to welcome Town & Country Federal Credit Union as the presenting sponsor of the Twilight 5K. Their generous underwriting support allows us to defray event expenses and dedicate more of your donations directly to cancer research, education and patient support here in Maine!
We had a great visit today from Lee Washburn on behalf of Ossipee Trail Motor Sales.
OT Motor Sales ran a great promotion in October for National Breast Cancer Awarness Month, selling tickets to win a specialty pink Subaru Impreza.
Lee was able to present us with a check for $4,700 and he hopes to be back again next year to support Maine women facing breast cancer.
Thank you Lee, and thank you Ossipee Trail Motor Sales!
Don't forget: Tri for a Cure registration drawing winners must claim their spot by midnight on Sunday, February 9th. All unclaimed spaces will be distributed to the waiting list on Monday.
Q. I want to have a team. Do all my team members need to be signed up by Sunday night?
A. Nope. You can fill in teams spaces later, as long as the team captain has registered.
We are excited to announce the winners of the 2014 Tri for a Cure registration drawing! Below is the first group of names randomly selected from our registration pool.
Don't see your name listed? Don't worry! Many participants choose to combine and form relay teams, freeing up additional spots.
We will announce the next group of registration drawing winners, beginning with #802, on Monday, Feburary 10th. Good luck!
Our great thanks to everyone for supporting this great event. The Sugarloaf Charity Summit helps to provide financial support for Maine Cancer Foundation and the Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center.
We are very pleased to welcome CRI-SIL Silicone Technologies back again this year as our presenting sponsor for Mary's Walk!
Mark Stevens, CEO and founder of CRI-SIL Silicone Technologies, along with his partner Michael Hirschy, President, have generously committed $20,000 to help the fight against cancer in Maine.
We are continually amazed at the generosity local businesses and organizations have shown to support Mary's Walk and the Kerrymen 5K. This record-breaking contribution is greatly appreciated and will go a long way toward funding local cancer programs in the coming year.
Thank you CRI-SIL!
We recently learned about a new program being offered at the YMCA of Southern Maine to help adult cancer survivors:
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a free 12 week, research-based physical activity and well-being program, designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health. This small group program meets twice a week for 75 minutes each class. The program provides a safe and supportive environment for cancer survivors to regain their physical, emotional, and spiritual strength. This program will be offered free to any community member and, in support of the whole family, includes a complimentary family membership for the 12 weeks the program is in session.
