Welcome to my Cross for LifeFlight Fundraising Page!
Between August 1 and August 31, I will be doing my own Crossing to support LifeFlight of Maine, a challenge that will symbolize the difficulties of providing lifesaving emergency medical care to Maine's many island and rural communities. This is will be my 8th year participating in the LifeFlight Crossing- 5 years making the 3.1 miles swim from Northport to Islesboro and 2 years of doing "crossings" of my own, including the now-annual Pigeon Hill triathlon and a long-distance swim in Cold Stream Pond. I have enjoyed being a part of the LifeFlight Community and look forward to more adventures this summer in support of the incredible work of LifeFlight of Maine.
LifeFlight of Maine is a nonprofit organization and the state’s only emergency medical helicopter service. With three helicopters, an airplane and ground ambulances, LifeFlight brings ICU-level care directly to the patient. Last year, LifeFlight cared for more than 2,300 patients. People who live in Maine and people who visit Maine—including me—depend on LifeFlight to be there for them. I’m comforted to know that they’ll be there for me, and for my friends and family, should the unthinkable happen.
Since 1998, LifeFlight has touched the lives of nearly 33,000 critically ill and injured people from nearly every community in Maine. I’m going to make my crossing to support this important cause. Won’t you support it, too? Just click on the “donate” button. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much for supporting my efforts, and mostly, for supporting this critically important service.
