Katahdin Climb for the Clinic – You Can Be Part of the Fun!

Hey Folks!

Here is a great opportunity to participate in a fundraising event for the Friends of the Portland Community Free Clinic (PCFC). For the second year there is a fundraising climb of Mount Katahdin in July. We have room for a maximum of 14 climbers and the are are still spaces on the roster! Reservations are confirmed for two nights at Chimney Pond on Friday July 7th and Saturday July 8th. There are 10 spots in the bunkhouse and 4 spots in a lean-to.

The itinerary goes like this: drive… up on Friday, hike 3.3 miles to Chimney Pond; climb to the top of Mount Katahdin on Saturday; hike out of Chimney Pond on Sunday and drive home.

Each climber is asked to raise $1,000 in sponsorships for the PCFC! Here is the web page so it’s easy to have folks donate for your climb. When you sign up your name will be added to the list and you can begin fundraising!

Please consider joining us. It is a great chance to bond with a spouse, sibling, parent, adult child, or a good friend. Cross this one off your bucket list item or just enjoy the trip and help out the PCFC! Last year climbers ranged in age from 30 to 75. Everyone came home raving about the trip and injury-free–it was safe, fun, and the experience of a lifetime.

Get complete details from Peter Toohey if you are interested (207-710-6571; or click here to email Peter) and ask any questions you have about this adventure. It was an EPIC trip to Katahdin last year – great time, great trip and a great fundraiser. Click here to check out some pics!

We look forward to welcoming you to the team for the 2017 Climb for the Clinic!
