Swimmers from near and far raise more than $110,000 to support LifeFlight in Islesboro Crossing’s sophomore year
Sixty open water swimmers braved the chilly Atlantic last Saturday to swim the 3.1-mile channel from Lincolnville to Islesboro in the 2nd annual Islesboro Crossing for LifeFlight. Each swimmer had spent the weeks and months leading up to the event gathering pledges from friends and family to raise money for LifeFlight to purchase advanced medical equipment and aircraft. These dedicated athletes raised more than $110,000, quadrupling the amount raised in the event’s first year.
