Patrick Dempsey learned a lot about the realities of Cancer during his mother’s long battle with the illness. He knew he wanted to give back to the community helping his mom through her Cancer journey. Patrick founded The Patrick Dempsey Center For Hope & Healing in his hometown of Lewiston, Maine. The Dempsey Center provides enduring wellness, betterment and community to those who need it most – free of charge. The Dempsey Challenge is another of Patrick’s projects, and he devotes considerable time and passion into making this event an incredible success for its participants, supporters, and surrounding communities. Patrick is hands-on and enthusiastically supportive of Positive Tracks’ youth call to action.
“The Dempsey Challenge encourages you to go the distance on behalf of those who need it most. And now, Positive Tracks allows young people to make a difference to their communities – it’s amazing. I believe in the Positive Tracks program because it’s about so much more than just fundraising – it’s about kids connecting to and giving back to the world in a healthy, creative, and productive way.”
