The warrior program is a central part of the C3 group. Warriors are nominated by participants of the Challenge to Conquer Cancer group and are either currently battling cancer or are in remission. During the year, warriors participate in group activities as they are able. At the end of the annual ride to Maine, Warriors are flown to Maine to cheer the cyclists as they arrive in Lewiston and to participate in the weekend activities at the Dempsey Challenge. It is a weekend to enjoy time together and the thousands of other participants (cancer warriors and support) who have gathered together for the celebration.
