Maine Lobster Festival donates to Run For Your Life
The directors of the Maine Lobster Festival were happy to present a donation of $250.00 to the Run For Your Life Emergency Service Challenge. Run For Your Life is an obstacle course race held at the Camden Snow Bowl to benefit local emergency services. The course is approximately 5 kilometers long and includes rope climbing, hoisting heavy objects, crawling under barbed wire, and more. This race raises citizen awareness of the work emergency service volunteers perform on a regular basis, and encourages others to volunteer in their local communities in life-saving roles as firefighters, police officers, and Emergency Medical Technicians.
The 2014 Run For Your Life Emergency Service Challenge will take place on May 24 at the Camden Snow Bowl. This challenge represents firefighters and paramedics who encourage more citizens to get involved with their local fire departments, ambulance services, and law enforcement agencies. Proceeds from the event will be donated to Atlantic Engine Company #2 (Camden Fire Department) and the Hope Fire Department.
