Patrick Dempsey has raised $1 million for his cancer center in his annual charity bike race.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope and Healing, an integral part of cancer care at The Central Maine Comprehensive Cancer Center and affiliated cancer clinics at Bridgton and Rumford hospitals. Located on the CMMC campus, the Dempsey Center was established by the actor in 2008.

The event saw 3,834 people take part in Lewiston. Comprised of various cycling distances (10, 25, 50, 70 and 100 miles), and a 5K (3.1 mile) and 10K (6.2 mile) run/walk, participants 18 and over are required to raise $150 (and encouraged to raise even more!) as they prepare for The Dempsey Challenge.
