Welcome to my Cross for LifeFlight Fundraising Page!
Between July 1 and October 9, 2022, 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. I will be running four trail running races of various lengths ranging from 10k to 50k. I am celebrating not only the accomplishments of LifeFlight, but also my service as medical director for this organization during the last decade. Additionally, I am celebrating my tentative recovery from pancreatic cancer that was diagnosed in September of 2021. I have much for which to be thankful.
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.
