South Portland, Maine. Over 1,400 women gathered in South Portland today, raising more than $1,380,000 to help the fight against cancer in Maine at the 7th annual "Tri for a Cure" triathlon, presented by WEX Inc. The women's-only event has grown to become one of the largest single-day fundraisers in the state, providing crucial support for local cancer organizations headed up by Maine Cancer Foundation.

"100% Maine. That's the heart of the Tri for a Cure," said Cullen McGough, communications director for Maine Cancer Foundation. "The Tri for a Cure was started in 2008 by Julie Marchese and Abby Bliss as a way to do something, a way to make a tangible difference in the fight against cancer in Maine. Today, we had over 1440 women and 450 volunteers out on the course because they want to see improvements — real improvements — in the care and treatments available to cancer patients in Maine."
