We need your support more than ever.  Covid19 has swept across the United States closing businesses, disrupting the health and safety of our community.  Lung cancer patients are at greater risk, as the disease attacks the lungs.  The money raised this year will once again stay in Maine to help our at risk community.

Awards will be presented after the event. This event is a fundraiser to help support Free ME from Lung Cancer's mission ~ research, help uninsured high risk patients get early detection via low dose CT scans, help single family low income homeowners get access to radon air abatement systems and to help covid19 relief funds in Maine.    Please consider making an extra donation when you register or set up a fundraising page so that your family, friends and coworkers can support your run.  Those raising $100.00 or more will get a free registration.  This is one of two events that support our foundation's programs. On-line donations are processed at 6%.  This supports RunSignUp web portal.  

With last year's money we donated two covid relief funds to area hospitals, provided 250 lung cancer care bags, set aside $15000 for our radon abatement program and $12000 for our early lung cancer screening program.  We are also working with the Dana Farber Cancer Insitute to fund a $100,000 research grant for a fellow researcher.
