Amgen Named Presenting Sponsor of The Dempsey Challenge: A Journey For Hope
Date:9/9/2009

LEWISTON, Maine and THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Amgen has signed on as the presenting sponsor of The Dempsey Challenge: A Journey for Hope, a cycling and 5K fundraising event scheduled for October 4 in Lewiston, Maine. The event supports The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing at Central Maine Medical Center.

The sponsorship provides an opportunity to expand Amgen's Breakaway from Cancer((R)) initiative, which aims to increase awareness of the important resources available to cancer patients from prevention to education, and patient care to advocacy and financial support. The program will be prominently integrated into The Dempsey Challenge through a Breakaway from Cancer parade recognizing, honoring, and celebrating cancer survivors. A Breakaway from Cancer Survivor Award will be presented by television and film actor Patrick Dempsey to a recipient who best represents the program's passion for survivorship; individuals will be nominated through The Dempsey Challenge web site.

Additionally, a Breakaway from Cancer booth will be set up on site at The Dempsey Challenge's Health and Wellness Expo to share information about free programs and services available to people affected by cancer.

"Amgen welcomes the opportunity to support The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing," said Stuart Arbuckle, vice president and general manager of Amgen's Oncology Business Unit. "We are pleased to once again partner with Patrick Dempsey, a respected advocate in the fight against cancer and a long-time supporter of Amgen's Breakaway from Cancer initiative, to help connect patients with the support they need in the fight against cancer."

Dempsey Challenge participants may choose one of four cycling tours (10, 25, 50 and 100-mile distances) or a 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk.
