The Runner’s registration fee is $35.
Children 12 and under may participate for free!
Registration fees are non-transferable and non-refundable.
Yes. To determine top fundraising individuals and teams for event day, our fundraising deadline is midnight, March 16. To qualify for fundraising incentives, participants have until event day, March 20, for online donations or to turn in funds at registration.
No. Everyone is welcome to participate, but we strongly encourage people to try fundraising. You will be surprised how easy it is to raise $50 or 100 dollars just by asking friends and family.
It's up to you! If you would like to participate with the group in-person, you may want to walk.
If you would like to run, you will want to choose to do the virtual run this year. Don your Mary's Walk and Kerrymen 5k running gear and take to the streets, trails, or beaches near your home. Runners have long been an essential part of this event and will continue to do so this year!
The matching gifts process is initiated by the donor who contacts his/her company’s human resources department for paperwork and/or procedures. The matching gift information is then sent by the donor or company to Maine Cancer Foundation ([email protected]) for validation and credit to the participant’s fundraising efforts.
You can get an official Mary's Walk/Kerrymen 5K shirt by registering by January 31, 2022.
Online registration will close Wednesday, March 16 at 5pm. Walkers can also register at the event on race day.
Mary Kerry Libby was well known for her friendly smile, gracious charm and kindness. A much-loved mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend, Mary lost her courageous battle with Burkitt’s Lymphoma on March 7, 1997 at the age of 44. The first Mary’s Walk was held on the Sunday before St. Patrick’s Day in March 1999.
The event has grown every year, and is now the biggest cancer walk in Maine. In 2019, our last live year, Mary's Walk saw more than 2,500 registered participants.
