The Hancock Family Fund for Healthy Aging

The Hancock Family Fund and the Hancock Classic were established to celebrate the lives of Frank and Kay Hancock, longtime residents of Cape Neddick and supporters of York Hospital, who both embodied the classic art of enjoying life and aging with grace and humor. Their work is carried on by their children Cal Hancock, Emi Betts and Josh Hancock.

A former attorney general of Maine and hospital board chair, Frank was a powerful intellect who easily blended commitment to his community and family. Kay, a hospital trustee and chair of many committees, was always strong, caring and on the move, maintaining her wit and mental edge until the age 91.

Be inspired and learn how the Hancock Family Fund for Healthy Aging supports programs and services that promote and benefit the physical, emotional, spiritual and overall health and well-being of our community as we age.
