Welcome to Team North Haven's Cross for LifeFlight Fundraising Page!
Between August 1 and August 31, we will be racking up the miles - swimming, biking, walking, running, and hiking - to symbolize the difficulties of providing lifesaving emergency medical care to Maine's many island and rural communities. We hope to once again have our month of miles culminate in a 5K swim in North Haven's waters.
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. As an EMT and an islander, I’m comforted to know that they’ll be there for my patients, 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. Our fundraising efforts make it possible for them to continue, and even expand their service. 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.
- Courtney Naliboff, North Haven EMT, and captain of Team North Haven
