2021 Cross for LifeFlight
WHAT: Self-led “choose your own sport” fundraising event to benefit LifeFlight of Maine
WHO: LifeFlight Foundation
WHEN: August 1-31, 2021
WHERE: Anywhere (self-led)
Join us as we Cross for LifeFlight again this August to raise funds for LifeFlight, Maine’s only emergency medical helicopter service. The 2021 Cross for LifeFlight is a self-directed outdoor challenge for individuals and teams, and is the primary fundraiser for LifeFlight of Maine.
Whether you love to challenge yourself or want to make it a memorable experience with friends, family or coworkers, the Cross for LifeFlight is open to everyone and every activity— hiking, cycling, swimming, kayaking, running, and sailing! You have the flexibility to set your own fundraising goal ($350 minimum), choose your favorite solo or team activity, and complete your crossing however, whenever and wherever you choose between August 1-31.
Registration is $100 per particpant and participants are required to raise a minimum of $350 by September 30, 2021. All contributions are tax deductible. Funds raised will help LifeFlight #CompleteTheFleet by bringing the third and final aircraft of its latest fleet upgrade program to Maine.
To-date, the LifeFlight Foundation has raised over $2 million to upgrade and standardize LifeFlight’s fleet of helicopters, purchase the specialized equipment needed on board, and to fund important clinical education and training programs across the state. Since its inception, the Cross for LifeFlight has grown to become one of LifeFlight of Maine's most important fundraisers of the year…and we count on people like you.
We can’t wait to hear all about your Cross for LifeFlight this year! Be sure to follow Cross for LifeFlight on Facebook and Instagram and use the hashtags #CrossForLifeFlight

Why We're Crossing
The act of "crossing" holds deep personal meaning to the people of Maine, who rely on LifeFlight to quickly cross Maine's vast expanses of water and land to reach those in need of emergency services, in all corners of our state.
Cross for LifeFlight attracts participants from across the country to raise funds for LifeFlight, Maine's only emergency medical helicopter service. Whether you're swimming, paddling, hiking, biking, running, rowing or sailing this fundraiser will challenge and inspire you.
At LifeFlight, we believe that everyone in Maine has the right to lifesaving critical care, and we know that every minute counts. With more than one million people spread across a vast state, providing critical care transport is an expensive proposition. When we all work together, however, we can bridge the miles to save lives.
Because of your work and dedication, LifeFlight has been able to purchase two brand new state-of-the-art medical helicopters. We've purchased specialized medical equipment designed specifically to take care of seriously ill patients in the transport environment. We've offered advanced clinical training and education to emergency medical providers across the state. All of that means you're helping even more people in Maine (residents and visitors alike) get the critical care and transport they need, when they need it.
