Cross for LifeFlight

  • Time: All Day

LifeFlight’s annual fundraiser is a remote event where participants “cross” their favorite part of Maine by swimming, paddling, hiking, biking, running, sailing, rowing and more. This unique event aims to connect the corners of Maine with hundreds of individual “crossings” much like LifeFlight connects patients from all over the state to the critical care they need. This unique statewide event has raised more than $1.8 million to help LifeFlight carry out its lifesaving mission. The breathtaking waters, mountains and trails of Maine are legendary… find your favorite place, or a new one, and make your crossing epic!
