The Dempsey Challenge 2017 is happening on October 7 and 8 at Simard Payne Park in Lewiston. The Dempsey Center's mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals, families and communities impacted by cancer. All of their services and programs are free. The support services provided by the Dempsey Center are made possible through the generosity of donations and this is their biggest fundraising event. Patrick Dempsey began the center in response to his mother's multiple bouts with ovarian cancer. Originally from Lewiston, that is where Patrick chose to establish the center, in the community where his mom had begun her cancer treatment. The Dempsey Challenge is a two-day, non-competitive run, walk, cycle fundraiser with every dollar going to the Dempsey Center so they can continue to serve those impacted by cancer.
