Lake Auburn Half, 5K Walk/Run, and Kids Fun Run @ Central Maine Community College
Sep 8 @ 7:30 am
Lake Auburn Half, 5K Walk/Run, and Kids Fun Run @ Central Maine Community College

Join us for our 8th Annual Lake Auburn Half Marathon, 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run at Central Maine Community College in Auburn, Maine. Through its partnership with Moving ME Forward (a nonprofit 501(c)3 founded in 2012), this event supports the local community through personal, business, and private contributions focused on supporting Maine communities to provide a healthier place to live.

The monies generated from this race provide the primary funding for the Moving ME Forward Grant Program. Moving ME forward provides mentoring, programming and resources to health and fitness professionals so that they can help others improve their wellness.

Each year, Moving ME Forward gives back 10,000- 20,000 dollars for “People to help People”. It influences the community through financial aid, internships, mentor-ships, volunteer services and needed supplies such as sneakers and warm clothing. We hope to exceed that amount this year and watch these programs continue to positively impact our community.
