Our good friend and supporter of the Portland Community Free Clinic is running in the Maine Marathon in September. This is her fourth marathon and she is well on her way with her training regimen. Erin is also raising money for the PCFC through the Marathon and we are very grateful for her support. In Erin’s own words:
My fourth marathon training is well underway! I’m running in part to raise funds for the incredibly efficient and caring community that is the Portland Community Free Clinic. On a shoestring budget the clinic cares for over 500 patients each year. How? Volunteer doctors and nurses who say coming to work at the clinic is a highlight for them. It’s medicine the way they want to practice it. Southern Maine residents residents are lucky to have this resource when they are between jobs and without insurance, or if their employers do not provide insurance. It’s not universal healthcare, but it’s a safety net until we get there!
