Mary’s Firemen For a Cure Is Back On With a New Location
Over the past 15 years Mary's Firemen for a Cure has raised over $220,000 for breast cancer patients in Maine. The race has previously been held at Shawnee Peak, where Mary Allen had worked and battled breast cancer. Her ski community, friends and family came together during that time to support her. Mary and her husband, Wayne Allen created Mary's Firemen for a Cure to help other Maine women fighting for their lives.
This organization is the largest third party fundraiser for the Susan G.Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. They're kinda' a big deal. They have heart while having fun, and everyone wants to be part of that. This year's Mary's Firemen for a Cure race will be held on March 9th at a new venue, Lost Valley in Auburn. Lost Valley stepped up when things fell through this year with long-time supporter, Shawnee Peak.
Not only does the race raise money for such an important cause, but it also is a boost to the local economy, as people come from all over to participate and attend.
This will be the first year that the race will take place at Lost Valley in Auburn. The race is open to any firefighter, EMT, and those affected by breast cancer. Put together a team of 5 and wear your full turnout gear while taking on a 50 foot modified slalom course and holding on to a 50 foot hose!
