LEWISTON, MAINE (AP) - Patrick Dempsey’s bicycle run in western Maine to raise money for his cancer center has netted about $1 million.
The Sun Journal of Lewiston ( http://bit.ly/oCj5ha) reports that about 4,000 people took part in the third annual fundraising effort to benefit the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope and Healing at the Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.
Hundreds of cyclists pedaled between 10 and 100 miles along roads in Androscoggin and Oxford counties during the two-day event, which ended Sunday. The roads were lined with spectators cheering the cyclists.
Dempsey, a native of Buckfield, plays Dr. Derek Shepherd on TV’s “Grey’s Anatomy.” He founded the Dempsey Center in 2008.
