In our Snapshots blog series, we turn to Maine Cancer Foundation constituents - from staff, board members and other volunteers, donors, grant recipients and beyond - to share important moments in their lives related to cancer. Our series will paint a broad stroke of the cancer landscape in the state, while narrowing the focus into the rare and intimate moments that bring us all together.
Town and Country Federal Credit Union is a proud sponsor of Maine Cancer Foundation’s largest fundraising events: the Twilight 5K, the Tri for a Cure, and Mary’s Walk. This year, 13 of their employees are competing in the Tenth Anniversary Tri for a Cure.
Thank you TCFCU for everything you do to help challenge cancer in Maine.
Michelle Arpin ran in last year's Tri for a Cure while she was undergoing chemotherapy. This year she lost her battle with cancer, and it's her daughters turn to swim in the 10th Anniversary Tri for a Cure in memory of her mother. Watch the inspiring story of 16-year-old Caroline Arpin below.
