Every dollar raised by Dempsey Challenge participants directly benefits the Dempsey Center — a leader in quality of life care for individuals and families impacted by cancer.
This challenge presented by Amgen is a fundraising experience for the Dempsey Center in Lewiston, Maine.
Comprised of various cycling distances (10, 25, 50, 70 and 100 miles), and a 5K (3.1 mile) and 10K (6.2 mile) run/walk, participants 18 and over are required to raise $150 (and encouraged to raise even more!) as they prepare for the challenge.
A youth fundraising campaign called Positive Tracks is available for young people 23 or under. (Please refer to the Youth section of the FAQs.)
The Dempsey Center provides free quality of life care to anyone impacted by cancer. More information on Patrick’s personal story and commitment, as well as services provided by the Dempsey Center, can be found at dempseycenter.org
