Join Downeast Toyota in the Fight Against Cancer with the Eastern Maine Medical Center
EMMC Champion the Cure Challenge Brewer ME
Did you know that each year, more than 1.6 million individuals are diagnosed with some form of cancer in the United States alone? While this number alone may be shocking, it simply means that cancer hits close to home for countless families in the United States and even more across the world. Many of us here at Downeast Toyota have come to know the trials and tribulations that accompany cancer and we have decided to fight back and take part in the EMMC’s Champion the Cure Challenge in Brewer, ME.
Throughout this event, we will team up with the Eastern Maine Medical Center (EMMC) in an effort to raise money in the fight against cancer. While our day-to-day task is to serve you as the premier Toyota dealership in the Bangor area, we also strive to be a valuable member of the communities we serve. Visit us today for all of your automotive needs and to get behind the wheel of the new 2016 Toyota Tacoma.
