Ellsworth and Addison–The Walk For Life in Ellsworth and Addison have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year is to be the 20th Walk For Life held in Addison, and the plan is to build on the sense of excitement and hope that pervaded the first Walk For Life held in May 2001. Beth Wright’s vision to ease the burden of those whose lives were affected by cancer, while she was battling the disease herself, has lived on and grown exponentially over the past two decades. The commitment through the years of cancer survivors, their families, friends, neighbors, and community members in Hancock and Washington Counties have made the Beth C. Wright Center what it is today.
We want to thank the businesses and individuals who are sponsoring this year’s Walk and also thank them for their support and understanding about the delay of the Walk. Our Platinum Sponsors are Mark Wright Disposal and Machias Savings Bank, Our Gold Sponsors are A.C., Inc., Bar Harbor Bank & Trust, Wayne Wright, Our Bronze Sponsors are Dwight E. Alley Building Contractor, and Dwight and Patti Carver. There still is time to be a sponsor of the Walk.
We are looking to hold the Walks in September or October. The planning committees are meeting every two weeks and monitoring the situation. Committee members agree that there will be a Walk For Life. What it looks like will be determined by many things beyond our control, but the Walk will go on.
You can still support the Walk now by registering or donating today. Check out the details for the Addison Walk and the Ellsworth Walk (keep in mind the final dates will be determined based on community health conditions.) For more information call 207-664-0339.
