Trekkers students and their families will be fundraising for dues assistance. This money goes directly to helping them pay for program costs like transportation, lodging, meals and activities they do while on expedition and throughout the year.

The race will follow recommended safety guidelines. Those interested can learn more about the race and sign up at the race website or call 207-594-5095 with any questions.
