ACTOR PATRICK DEMPSEY
Patrick Dempsey stars as neurosurgeon Dr. Derek Shepherd ("McDreamy") on the ABC medical drama GREY'S ANATOMY. He has also appeared in several films, including SWEET HOME ALABAMA, MADE OF HONOR, VALENTINE'S DAY, FREEDOM WRITERS and TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON.
Patrick Dempsey also helped start the Patrick Dempsey Center at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, Maine. In October 2009 when Dempsey introduced the first Dempsey Challenge, registration was closed after reaching the goal of 3,500 cyclists, runners and walkers. The event raised more than $1 million for the cancer center. The Challenge has since become an annual October event presented in the Lewiston-Auburn area.
