The 4th Annual “Running for Rides, Mary Parker Memorial 5K” run and walk is set for Saturday, October 5 beginning at 8 a.m.
The race is a fundraiser created in honor of Mary’s passion for Island Connections where she worked as the Transportation Coordinator prior to losing her battle with cancer.
The course begins at Pat’s Pizza in Bar Harbor and continues through a portion of the Park Loop Road in Acadia National Park. This is a race for runners and walkers alike, and friendly furry friends on a leash are welcome.
All proceeds benefit Island Connections, whose mission involves meeting the transportation needs for those who are seniors or people with physical or mental challenges. For more information, please call 207- 288-4457 or visit the website at islconnections.org. To sign up for the race, please click here:
