This summer, more than 150 people swam, biked, ran, paddled, rowed or walked more than 2,600 miles covering all points in Maine and beyond as part of the state's premier statewide, self-led, multi-activity event.
Thank you to our participants, sponsors and donors. Together, we raised more than $350,000 to help bring a third, upgraded critical care helicopter to Maine. We are deeply grateful for the commitment and dedication of all of the participants and for the generosity of the 1,800 donors who support them.
To those who joined us this year – we hope you take great pride in knowing you’ve done something special to help care for the people of Maine.
