PRLog (Press Release) - Oct. 6, 2011 - LEWISTON, Maine – Androscoggin Bank today announced that the Bank has established a 46-person employee team to take part in the annual Dempsey Challenge on October 8 and 9 in Lewiston, Maine. The Dempsey Challenge is a running, walking and cycling charitable event which unites the Lewiston-Auburn community towards a common goal of fighting cancer while promoting fitness to all participants and partners. This weekend’s event will be comprised of various cycling distances (10, 25, 50, 70 and 100 miles), and a 5K (3.1 mile) and 10K (6.2 mile) run/walk. The Bank will have at least one team member participating in each event and distance.

Androscoggin Bank has supported the Dempsey Challenge since its inception in 2009; on Saturday, 34 Androscoggin Bank team members will be walking or running the route and on Sunday, 17 team members will be cycling the route. As of October 5, 2011, more than $12,000 has been raised by this year’s Androscoggin Bank team. All proceeds will benefit The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, Maine.

“It’s been said that one of Patrick Dempsey’s driving forces for the event is to get people moving, which is what really speaks to me about the event,” said Bob Rand, Vice President and Information Systems Manager at Androscoggin Bank. “Androscoggin Bank is always looking for ways to encourage community involvement and we are drawn to activities like this that are both charitable and unique. Of course, as an avid cycler for five years now, I am also personally looking forward to participating and thrilled to be our team leader.”

For its entire 141 years, Androscoggin Bank has supported hundreds of organizations by funding new initiatives and responding to urgent needs in the community. For more information on Androscoggin Bank’s community-giving programs, visit http://www.bankoncommunity.org.
