A group of young adults running from Portland, ME to New York, NY to support those affected by cancer in Maine. June 21-27, 2020.

Trek Highlights:

  • ADVENTURE: Leave your footprint on the 300+ mile route between Portland, ME and New York City.

Run alongside rocky Maine and New Hampshire coast, through the central and western Massachusetts hills and into the Hudson River region as you enter New York City. 

  • FRIENDSHIP: Meet other young adults from the northeast and build new friendships, leadership skills, and memories to last a lifetime. 
  • SERVICE: Visit cancer centers, hospitality homes, fundraise, and serve community dinners to support cancer patients and their families.


This 7-day relay run, June 21 – 27, 2020, is an adventure that builds young adult leaders around New England to step outside their comfort zone, push their limits, and support those affected by cancer. The 2020 Eastern Trek for Cancer marks the sixth year of the Christine B. Foundation sending a team down the northeast coast to raise awareness and funds for their mission.

During this 300-mile relay run, Trekkers will submerge themselves in the communities they run through. During stops at cancer centers and hospitality homes, serving community dinners, and awarding CBF’s scholarship the team pushes beyond the road to engage in CBF’s mission. Each runner pledges to raise $2,500 through their network of supporters for this journey and mission. Since the first Trek in 2015, ETC runners have raised over $145,000 to build a community of support for those affected by cancer in Eastern Maine.
