Maritime Energy/Energy 4 Life has reached the $100,000 mark of money donated to the Maine Cancer Foundation!

By Maritime Energy | Oct 04, 2016

I’d like to thank all of you who contributed to our 5th Annual Karen’s 5k Run/Walk on September 24th. Whether you volunteered, ran, walked or made a contribution, I very much appreciate your participation.

Statistics show that 1 out of every 2 men will get cancer and 1 out of every 3 women. Maine also has one of the highest rates of certain types of cancers in the country.


The money we raise goes to The Maine Cancer Foundation directed towards cancer research and to our very own Energy 4 Life program which helps local families dealing with cancer.

While our part is small in the whole scheme of this horrible disease, I feel our community events/contributions have been very successful in doing our part to try to make a difference.

I’m pleased to let everyone know the money raised from the Karen’s Walk this year is up over last year and we raised $7,200.00!

In the last 4 years, we have reached the $100,000.00 mark of money that we have donated to The Maine Cancer Foundation!

“Maine Cancer Foundation is truly fortunate to count Maritime Energy as one of its best friends in the Maine business community. Thanks again for continuing to partner with us to challenge cancer and make life better for those who call Maine home, “
Says Charles E. Henshall, Director of Development for The Maine Cancer Foundation.

Thank you All,
