A Big Hooray for the Twilight 5K!

On behalf of Maine Cancer Foundation and the many thousands of individuals across our state suffering from cancer, I want to thank you for your generous support at the Twilight 5K. 

Last Thursday, we welcomed over 1,000 passionate individuals to the Twilight 5K and together we raised more than $123,448 to keep the fight against cancer in Maine going strong. 

I want to acknowledge the generous contributions made by the thousands of participants, volunteers, donors, and sponsors who were part of this event. Together, we send a powerful message to everyone in our communities suffering from cancer: you are not alone in this fight. 

Join Us In This Challenge:

We invite you to take the next step with a personal challenge: Challenge Cancer 2020 is a state-wide campaign working to cut cancer in Maine 20% by the year 2020, and you can help. 

We are focused on three big targets: increasing cancer prevention, increasing screening and improving patient outcomes throughout Maine. 

To support these efforts, we're working to raise $15,000,000 in support of local Maine programs that impact these areas. Our goal is to prevent thousands of needless cancer deaths and improve the odds of survival for many more.

We serve as a hub for Maine's cancer fight, but you make the difference. Join us as a fundraiser in fantastic events like the Twilight 5K. Become a member of our professional membershipVolunteer and give back to your local community.

Thank you again for your generous support, we will continue this fight until cancer is no longer a threat to our loved ones.
