Fight Back Festival, featuring the Not Dead Yet bike ride, is the Cancer Community Center’s annual family fundraiser held at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine. This event offers something for everyone – while raising thousands of dollars to support free programs and services for Mainers touched by cancer.
For 2016, our goal is to raise $135,000 in donations and registrations for Fight Back Festival – that’s 20% of our annual budget!
With your help and support we are confident that we will reach this goal. Whether you walk, run, bike, or come to cheer on friends and family members, you make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.
New for 2016 – all registered runners, walkers and cyclists, 18 and older, have a $100 minimum fundraising requirement.
Fight Back Festival is an important fundraising event for the Cancer Community Center. While registration fees cover event expenses, the new fundraising requirement assures that we can raise the money needed to continue our mission – promoting and supporting the well-being of people living with cancer, their families and friends.
