DempseyCenter.org and DempseyChallenge.org are now combined into a new and improved website.
Information for the Dempsey Challenge can be found under “Dempsey Challenge” in our main navigation.
Patrick Dempsey founded the Dempsey Center in 2008 with the intention of giving back to the community where he grew up, and where his mother first received cancer treatment in 1997.
Since 2009, Patrick has returned to Lewiston-Auburn every fall for the annual Dempsey Challenge. His presence is felt throughout the weekend as he participates in one of the cycle rides, along with his friends and family, greets the crowds and personally thanks top fundraisers for their amazing efforts.
In 2016, Patrick took on an advisory role at the Dempsey Center so he can continue to help support those impacted by cancer.Donate & Give Back
