Patrick Dempsey went cycling in Maine for a worthy cause over the weekend. The former “Grey’s Anatomy” star was one of 3,789 participants (from 33 states and seven countries) who took part in the Dempsey Challenge, the annual run/walk/cycling fund-raiser that benefits the Dempsey Center, a cancer support organization in Lewiston, Maine, that he cofounded in 2008. More than 1,000 volunteers helped run this year’s event, which raised over $1.2 million.
