Thank you for visiting the fundraising page for the 2019 Maine Children’s Cancer Program Walk!
Yarmouth Colts- Tucker's Team
This year's MCCP WALK will be on Saturday, September 21st in various locations across the state. Hundreds of people will be joining to walk in solidarity to show support and raise funds and awareness for kids battling cancer and blood disorders in the state of Maine.
It has become a celebrated Colts tradition to participate in this meaningful event that raises both awareness and funds for this important local organization. Our support of MCCP began in honor of cherished Colts player, Jameson Tucker Olmsted, who sadly lost his courageous battle with cancer shortly before his 14th birthday.
While our commitment to MCCP originated with Tucker, it has grown to encompass the far too many families in our Yarmouth community whose lives have been profoundly impacted by this horrible disease. Tucker's wish was that he not be forgotten and that we not forget his friends at MCCP. Thus, we walk in memory of beloved lives lost in our community, in support of families currently facing the struggle and in solidarity that a cure is within our reach.
The Colts organization remains committed to encouraging our players to give of themselves, not only on the soccer field, but in our larger community as well. While your child's participation in the Walk is voluntary, we do strive for active participation. Colts takes pride in the large number of players we send to the Walk each year and MCCP remains deeply grateful for the significant presence and fundraising that Colts players and their families contribute annually. In addition, our players seem to understand the importance of being part of something larger than themselves and contributing to the well being of others.
Each dollar raised stays here in Maine and goes towards state-of-the-art equipment, psychosocial services for the patient and their family, and research to help find a cure for childhood cancer. With the support of people like you, we can make a huge difference in the lives of local children battling this horrible disease.
Please consider making a donation to supprt and advance the Maine Children’s Cancer Program’s mission: to keep cancer from getting in the way of kids being kids!
On behalf of everyone affected by childhood cancer, thank you!
