The Ride For Life is one of the two major fundraisers put on by the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center. The money raised by our generous donors, participants, and sponsors fuels our free programs and services offered to people affected by cancer in Hancock and Washington counties. We look forward to the Ride For Life as a time for supporters and volunteers of the Center to come together, celebrate the sense of community at the heart of the Beth Wright Center and make sure its caring and neighborhood spirit live on as we continue to work with the people of Downeast Maine.
