The Dempsey Challenge (yes, ladies, Patrick "Dr. McDreamy" Dempsey from "Grey's Anatomy") is an annual international fundraising platform in Lewiston and Auburn, Maine, which benefits The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, Maine.

Comprised of various cycling distances (10, 25, 50, 70 and 100 miles), and
a 5K (3.1 mile) and 10K (6.2 mile) run/walk, participants 18 and over are required to raise $150 (and encouraged to raise even more!) as they prepare for The Dempsey Challenge.

P.S. If you are interested in joining a local team, I am on the Androscoggin Bank Team, which is accepting new participants. Just click on the "Teams" link. You can do the run/walk, or the bike ride, or both.

Thanks for your interest!
