Mid Coast Cycling Team Raises Funds to Support Healthy Lungs

Twenty-four cyclists on the Mid Coast team took part in the 30th Annual Trek Across Maine June 13-15. Now in it's seventh year of participating, the 2014 Mid Coast cycling team raised more than $13,000 in support of the American Lung Association (ALA) and healthy lungs in Maine, the most of any team in its category.

The 2014 Mid Coast team members were Christina Bouchard, Rebecca Brewster-Taylor, Colleen Brink, Jessica Buckner, Beth Cormier, Steve Cormier, Rosemary Cummings, Carl DeMars, Rachel Devereaux, Kelly Gleason, Matthew Hanna, Tom Kivler, Heather Lagasse, NancyLaprad, Paul LaPrad, David Miller, Sharon Miller, Janet Moore, Heidi Pomerleau, James Rines, Nathaniel Rines, Karleen Smat, John Taylor, and Corey Weichel.

During the 180-mile "Mountains-to-the-Sea" ride, the Mid Coast cyclists were greeted by strong supporters, including Mid Coast Health Services President and CEO Lois Skillings and Intensive Care nurse Morgan MacMahon.

Local Midcoast businesses also showed their support through donations of time and equipment. Bath Bus Services provided shuttle services to and from the event so the team could arrive together. Packing blankets to protect bicycles were lent from Nickerson Trucking, a Brunswick-based moving company.

Team captain Janet Moore commented, "I am so happy to continue participating in this event each year. With so much support from our staff and administration as well as local businesses, friends, and families, it truly is a community effort. All for such an important cause."

As the ALA's biggest fundraising event, the Trek raises $2 million in pledges. The cycling event increases awareness and funds to fight lung disease and improve air quality in Maine.

The Mid Coast cycling team is already preparing for next year's ride. If you are interested in joining, contact Janet Moore at jmoore@midcoasthealth.com
