About the Challenge

The Dempsey Challenge champions a spirit of celebration and culture of paying it forward.

The 2016 Dempsey Challenge will take place on October 1 – 2 in Lewiston-Auburn, Maine.

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.

Components of the Dempsey Challenge:

Signs of Hope & Healing

Signs of Hope & Healing are an important reminder of what the Dempsey Challenge and Dempsey Center are all about – showing support for or remembrance of those impacted by cancer. Dempsey Challenge participants that raise $200 or more are entitled to submit a sign at no cost. All others may submit a sign with a $75 donation.

Please note: After the weekend, signs will be available for retrieval at the Dempsey Center until October 28. At that time, all remaining Signs of Hope & Healing will be recycled.
