Registration is now OPEN for the 10th Annual Fight Back Festival!

Fight Back Festival is an annual family fundraiser supporting the Cancer Community Center, a nonprofit organization devoted to supporting adults affected by cancer with free services. Fight Back Festival 2015 will take place Saturday, September 26, 2015 at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine. You can choose between a 1-mile stroll, 5K trail walk, 5K trail run, 10-mile bike ride, 25-mile bike ride, 60-mile bike ride, and Kids Fun Run. You pay a small registration fee, and then raise money through friends, family, and businesses leading up the event.

Fight Back Festival is a combination of two separate fundraisers. Several years ago, the Center started hosting a small 5k run/walk. Independent from that, two local physicians and cancer survivors – Chris Kuhn and Dave Langdon – returned to Maine from a national charity bike ride and decided they could make more impact on the local community by hosting their own ride. They called their ride “Not Dead Yet” and named the Cancer Community Center as the beneficiary. After a couple years of separate events, the Center’s 5k walk/run merged with the Not Dead Yet bike ride and Fight Back Festival was born.
