Bar Harbor Bank & Trust Supports Champion the Cure Challenge

Date: 04/30/2022

Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center was honored to be designated the recipient of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust’s Casual for a Cause employee-led campaign contributions from last quarter.

Jack Frost, VP, director of community giving for Bar Harbor Bank & Trust explains, “Our employees in Maine selected Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center for this donation based upon the passion and dedication the organization has to advancing philanthropy for cancer research and enhancing patients’ care through the Champion the Cure Challenge fundraiser.”

Each year, the Champion the Cure Challenge brings together thousands of people in our communities who believe that Maine people deserve to have the very best cancer care available as close to home as possible. Champion the Cure Challenge is the only event in our region that funds local cancer research and enhances patients’ care and their experience fighting cancer. Participants can run, walk, cycle, paddle, trail ride, participate virtually and even fish in honor memory of someone close to them.

“We are very grateful to Bar Harbor Bank & Trust for including us in their Casual for a Cause campaign. Not only will the funds support cancer patients right here in Maine, but the quarter-long initiative also provided Champion the Cure Challenge with enhanced visibility among Bar Harbor Bank & Trust employees and clients. We are appreciative of all their efforts and look forward to cheering their team on at the Champion the Cure Challenge this August,” says Terry Leahy, director for oncology operations at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center.
