Caring Connections, in conjunction with the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition, will be celebrating survivors with a fun event on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Hampden Academy in Hampden, Maine. Click here for a schedule of events.
We will be celebrating breast cancer survivors with a lap around the outdoor track, and honoring the survivors’ support system by inviting their families, caregivers, or other supporters to join the survivors for another lap.
Inside Hampden Academy, attendees can embrace wellness with numerous opportunities to enjoy educational seminars, exercise classes, yoga, healthy food, and more! There will also be many informational/exhibitor booths, Darlings photo booth, and door prizes.
The cost of registration for the event is $12.00. (Children 12 and under are free.) Funds raised will support Caring Connections programs and services. T-Shirts will be available for purchase.
