Who are we fundraising for you ask?
University of Maine Cooperative Extension's Maine Harvest for Hunger program has played a significant role in supporting area food pantries by providing families in need in the River Valley with fresh locally grown produce. Produce is distributed to families weekly throughout the growing season without any questions regarding need. The distributions are accompanied by nutrition education that is provided by UMCE. All funds raised will stay in the River Valley to support continued efforts.
River Valley healthy Communities Coalition would like to thank our sponsors: Bangor Savings Bank, Irving Forest Products, Pine Tree Cellular, The Maine Press, Mexico Pizza Hut, BC Consultants, The Fitch Company, Dignity Memorial, Med-Care/Parent Heart Watch, Franklin Savings Bank, The Red Hen Diner and Davis Florist.

The 2012 Healthy Hearts 5K was a huge success with 160 registered participants. The field was a mix of teams from local businesses and four schools. Many of the participants were children who were entering their first competition ever. We anticipate 2013 to have the same festival feel as 2012 with more new faces in their first event.
