Throughout Dempsey Challenge weekend, we’ll take time and space to HONOR TOGETHER the friends, family, and loved ones whose lives have been impacted by cancer.


Amanda Dempsey Award

Named in memory of Patrick Dempsey’s mother Amanda Dempsey, the award is presented to a cancer survivor who has a passion for helping Mainers with cancer. Although Amanda was reserved and humble, she had a warm presence, and was passionate about giving back to her community. 


Signs of Hope + Healing

At the Dempsey Challenge, you'll see wonderful messages of support and love lining the Riverwalk and portions of the run/walk and ride routes. Signs of Hope + Healing are an important reminder of what the Dempsey Challenge and Dempsey Center are all about - showing support for those impacted by cancer.

Dempsey Challenge participants, spectators, volunteers - anyone impacted by cancer - are invited to create a sign for display throughout Dempsey Challenge weekend.

Virtual Honor Wall presented by TD Bank

We're proud to present this unique virtual dedication wall to honor those managing the impact of cancer, to celebrate survivors who are now cancer free, and to memorialize loved ones we've lost but who will forever remain in our hearts.
