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.

During this past October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Maine Staffing Group invited their flaggers in Maine and New Hampshire to participate in a Pink Hard Hat fundraising campaign. All proceeds from the campaign were matched by Project Flagging and were donated to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition in Sharon’s name. All flaggers received a pink hard hat to wear for the month of October to show their support.
Maine Breast Cancer Coalition is grateful for the generosity of Maine Staffing Group and all of the flaggers who took part in the Project Flagging Pink Hard Hat campaign. Our hearts go out to Sharon Burns’s family and friends. We are honored to accept the $5,000 donation to our Support Service Fund in Sharon's name.

The students took part in a one-mile walk/run and collected pledges totaling $852.39! The Maine Breast Cancer Coalition volunteers who accepted the check were so impressed with these young people who raised such a big donation for our Support Service Fund. Read more here.
