Pa­trick Dempsey re­turns to Maine for can­cer fundraiser

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Pa­trick Dempsey is in Maine for a can­cer fundraiser af­ter re­leas­ing a new movie.

The “Dempsey Chal­lenge” is a fundraiser for The Pa­trick Dempsey Cen­ter for Can­cer Hope & Heal­ing. The Maine-born ac­tor and his sis­ters cre­ated the cen­ter in 2008 in part­ner­ship with the Cen­tral Maine Med­i­cal Cen­ter in Lewis­ton.

They were in­spired by their mother, Amanda, who died of can­cer in 2014.

The event typ­i­cally draws other celebri­ties and sports fig­ures. This week­end’s par­tic­i­pants in­clude NASCAR champ Bobby Labonte and sev­eral pro­fes­siona cy­clists.
