Cross for LifeFlight
Introducing a reimagined fundraising event:
Cross for LifeFlight
(formerly the Islesboro Crossing)
AUGUST 1 - 31, 2021
Let's get excited!
Although we have begun to see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine roll-out, we will face many unknowns before it's over. As a frontline organization, LifeFlight understands the continuing risks posed by the pandemic every day.
For these reasons, we are holding a reimagined, remote event again in 2021.
We'll be expanding on what we started in 2020 with hundreds of individual and team crossings taking place across Maine and beyond. Through our digital and social platforms we'll stay connected and build a community of crossers--swimmers, paddlers, bikers, hikers, runners, rowers, sailors and more--who all have one thing in common: support and love for LifeFlight. We're expanding the timeframe of the event so this year you will have the entire month of August to complete your crossings. We're offering improved fundraising tools and ideas, and we're hard at work upgrading the infamous crossing tracker to make it easier to use.
When you register for the event you'll receive a custom t-shirt from Life Is Good, a one-of-a-kind medal from Maine-based Zootility, a quick dry towel, two-in-one mini flashlight and, back by popular demand, a reusable face mask. As you raise money and reach milestones, you can build your very own Maine adventure kit with a Yeti from MaineSport, a gazetteer from Delorme and a stowaway pack from LL Bean.
All proceeds benefit LifeFlight of Maine
LifeFlight of Maine is a nonprofit charity organization. We rely on private donations from individuals, corporations and foundations to purchase state-of-the-art medical equipment and emergency medical aircraft. The crossers who take on this challenge, and the sponsors who support them, make it possible for LifeFlight to serve Maine's rural communities, from Fort Kent and Calais to Islesboro, Bethel, Kittery and everywhere in between.
Sponsorships ranging from $500 to $20,000 are available and offer excellent promotional opportunities for participating businesses. For more information, please contact Anna Dugal at the LifeFlight Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-230-7092.
