I want to support LifeFlight of Maine. How do I sign up?
Great, we’d love to have you join us! For this year’s event, you can choose your favorite activity to cross Maine in your favorite location. Participants can swim, paddle, hike, bike, row, sail, and more in every county, helping us connect the corners of Maine, just like LifeFlight connects patients across the state to the critical care they need, when they need it. 

What will the 2024 event look like? 
Complete your Crossing anytime between August 1 and August 31. This means you’ll have the entire month to complete a swim, paddle, row, ride, run, hike of your choice. In addition, new this year we will have optional in-person, synchronous events! You will have the opportunity to join a group hike or bike or a stand-up sunset paddlebboard in Portland as part of your Cross, if you wish.  To learn more about the in-person events, click here.  Also, we want to hear all about your Crossing so be sure to share your plans with us!  You will be able to easily track your activities and miles Crossed along with submit photos of you doing so!  

If i join a team do we have to do our Crossing together?
Your Crossing can be with your team, or solo, it is totally up to you! Teams are created to increase engagement, comradery, and reach shared mileage goals and milestones. 

Who can join me at the in-person events? 
We are very much looking to the in-person events and hope that you are, too! As they are new, each event has a limited capacity, and in-person event participation is limited to participants who are registered for the Cross for LifeFlight.  If your friends and family want to join you - encourage them to sign for their own Cross and join your team! 
Am I required to fundraise?
The fundraising minimum is crucial to our successful event and LifeFlight's ongoing mission. The fundraising minimum is $350 - but that's just 10 donations from family, friends, and coworkers of $35 each.

What can make your Cross for LifeFlight even better?
Teams! The Cross for LifeFlight is better with friends and family! Anyone can create a new team or join an existing team. Each team member registers as an individual and is committing to the minimum fundraising goals, but teams are a great way to participate together and motivate each other to meet your goals.

How will I get my participant kit?
Participant kits will be mailed to participants in early July. 

Why is this event so important for LifeFlight?
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 a complex but essential service. When we all work together, we can bridge the miles to save lives.
