The Annual Beth C. Wright Walk for Life, starting at the Addison Town Hall, will be held on Saturday, May 18th at 10:00 am. This year there will again be two options; a 5 mile loop and a 2 mile out and back course. The Walk for Life provides critical funding for the services, support and programs offered to cancer survivors, their family and friends by the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center at our location at 23 Commerce Park in Ellsworth and throughout Washington and Hancock Counties.

In addition to the Walk in honor and memory of people that have been affected by cancer, there will be a Chinese auction, barbecue lunch, bake sale, music, kiddie train rides and face painting. New this year will be Dine, Dance and Donate for Life at the Narraguagus High School on Friday, May 17. Dinner is from 4-6:30 pm followed by entertainment from 6:30-8:30.

Walkers can ask friends, family and neighbors to pledge money for the Center to show support for walkers and the work of the Center. We had great success with teams last year and are encouraging people to form teams. Special recognition will be given to teams or individuals that raise at least $500.

Registration begins at 8:30 am. To register or donate online go to or call 664-0339 for a registration form.
