I am running the 2012 Mount Desert Island Marathon to rasie funds for Healthy Acadia, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to building vibrant communities across the Maine's Hancock and Washington Counties.
Healthy Acadia strives to make lasting improvments to the health of our communities by connecting individuals with health supports, building partnerships, coordinating education and prevention services, and improving policies and environments. Healthy Acadia's central goal is to make it easier for people to make healthy choices for themselves and their families.
Healthy Acadia also serves as the Healthy Maine Partnership for Hancock County, coordinating essential public health services throughout the region.
