Mt. Katahdin Fundraiser
We have an exciting fundraising event planned for the Friends of the Portland Community Free Clinic. Twelve hikers have committed to climbing Mt. Katahdin on July 10-12, 2016. Each individual has pledged to raise at least $1,000--our total goal is to raise $15,000 through this event. At an elevation of 5,269 feet, Mt Katahdin is the highest mountain in Maine and represents a significant climb even for expereinced hikers.
As the president of the Friends of the Portland Community Free Clinic, the non-profit organization that supports the PCFC, I plan to climb Mt. Katahdin and raise as much money as possible for the Clinic, which provides much needed FREE Medical Care for those who need it most, the working poor in the Greater Portland, Maine area. I hope you will cheer me on and support me with your own contributions.
This event was spurred on by a grant received last year by the Friends of the PCFC by Climb4acure. This Foundation, started in 2007 by Bryan Neider, raises funds for diabetes prevention and makes grants to clinics who serve low income, uninsured diabetic patients. Bryan has a goal to climb the highest mountain in every state. We are thrilled he will be joining our Katahdin team in July. Climb4acure has already committed $2,500 to this event!

Thank you in advance for your support!
