Bates College has one of our strongest alumni networks, not only in the number of alums that are students there, but also in their presence in the greater community. Last month, Bo Cramer (S08), Owen Minott (S08), Emilie Geisenger (S08), and Lucy Triedman (S10) participated in a 10K as part of The Dempsey Challenge, which raises money for The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, Maine. Together, they raised $2035, but a program called Positive Tracks matched their donations so they raised over $4000! What a PERFECT example of "giving back twice!" Congratulations! With 2 weeks of CONCHtribution 2011 down, Chris Maxey wants to remind you all to participate and continue on your quest for the Golden Conch...
