Thank you for visiting the Hennessy fundraising page for the 2019 Dempsey Challenge!
Gail and I have wanted to participate in this wonderful fundraiser for many years as cancer has affected our families and friends. Unfortunately, timing had us out of Maine during the past, but this year we will be in the State and participating. Now, don’t get ideas that we will be cycling or running, but will take on the 5KM Walk.
This year, as you know is quite different for us, and is affording us many new experiences - some not the greatest, but better than many people in the same situation. To assist others in providing essential support, the actor and Maine Native son, Patrick Dempsey, created this fundraiser to assist Cancer survivors.
The money that I am raising will go directly towards supporting the Dempsey Center, a Maine-based nonprofit organization with locations in Lewiston and South Portland. The Dempsey Center makes life better for people managing the impact of cancer by easing the side effects of cancer through complementary therapies, counseling and other support services for individuals and families.
Please support me in my fundraising efforts by making a donation. Any amount you can give makes a difference! Every dollar of your donation directly benefits cancer patients, survivors and their families.
Thank you for your support! - Shawn
