Did You Take the Challenge?

The weather was gorgeous in Maine this last weekend. And, while we couldn’t all gather at the Lafayette Family Cancer Institute in person, we hope that you got outside to enjoy the beautiful summer weather and take the Challenge?

Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center’s Champion the Cure Challenge raises critical funds to support local cancer research and patient care needs. It’s one of our favorite events of the summer, and we loved hearing the different ways in which people got creative to take the challenge. A few of us got together to safely distance walk a 5K around the Tree Streets in Bangor. Some people also baked, gardened, painted to add some creative twists to how folks take the Challenge this year.

If you didn’t have a chance to join us for the Facebook Live event on Saturday, August 15, we invite you to watch it here. And, if you and your family are still interested in participating in Champion the Cure Challenge Virtual 2020, register online at, and complete your activity by September 20, 2020.
