We are excited to announce that the 20th Annual Beth C. Wright Walk For Life has been set!
The Walk will take place on Saturday, September 26, 2020 in Addison.
The annual Walk For Life brings together people of all ages from Hancock and
Washington Counties, who believe that the free programs and services offered by the Beth Wright Cancer Resource Center are vitally needed. This year’s Walk is not the way we envisioned celebrating the 20th anniversary of the event that was started in memory of Beth Charczynski Wright, founded this organization before her death at age 28. On the other hand, we didn’t want this year to pass without recognizing and celebrating this important milestone.
We hope that you will again be able to participate in and support the Walk, our biggest fundraiser, to the best of your ability. A successful Walk is needed to bring in the
funds necessary to ensure that our programs and services are offered at no cost to people living with cancer in Washington and Hancock Counties. The pandemic has also resulted in reductions in grant opportunities, fewer donations, and an inability to host other in-person events and fundraisers.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Walk For Life had to be delayed and we cannot offer it in the traditional way. We have worked hard to design the Walk so we could make it a face-to-face event in accordance with the State of Maine governor’s mandates & the Maine CDC recommendations put in place for safety.

Celebrating the 20th Annual Beth C. Wright WALK FOR LIFE
Saturday, September 26, 2020 - 9 am
Addison Town Hall, Addison, Maine
The 20th Annual Beth C. Wright Walk For Life illuminates the selfless vision of a very special woman, Beth C. Wright. Beth’s desire to help ease the burden of those who lives were affected by cancer, while she was battling the disease herself, has turned into a living vision that has lived on and grown exponentially over the past two decades. The Beth C. Wright Center is what it is today because of the commitment through the years of cancer survivors, their families, friends, neighbors, community members and volunteers in both Washington and Hancock Counties. The Walk For Life has been the anchor on this voyage carrying Beth’s vision into the future. Let’s celebrate the sense of excitement and hope that pervaded the first Walk For Life in May 2001 this year and into the future.
Walkers are key to making the WALK FOR LIFE a success. We are encouraging people to form teams of at least five people. We will give special recognition to each team raising $500 or more by including the team name on the back of our 20th Annual Beth C. Wright Walk For Life T-shirt.
Please sign your team up and let us know your total money raised by September 26, 2020 to get your team name on the T-shirt. All donations from the Walk will have an immediate impact and will be used locally in Washington and Hancock Counties.
The 20th Annual Walk For Life will bring some additional activites to make this a very special day!
Our Schedule Includes:
1- 2- or 5-Mile Walk
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, September 26, 2020!
THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS SPONSORS!
