After our involvement with last year’s Millinocket Marathon & Half, we were excited to be invited to participate and support the Marathon once again! The day before the race, we held a kick off press event was held on Thursday followed by a dinner for our Team Wabanaki half-marathon runners.
On the morning of race day, WPHW team members Newell Lewey and Lauren Stevens recited a traditional prayer and sang an opening song. Our WPHW volunteers were cheering and supporting from Mile Marker 1 & 14 throughout the rainy day. We opened our Healing Lodge as warming center and provided some comfort to the runners with warm drinks and friendly faces.
We want to with congratulations to our Team Wabanaki runners who ran the Millinocket Marathon & Half – including our Co-CEO Lisa Sockabasin! We also wanted to extend our gratitude for our staff volunteers who supported the efforts throughout the weekend. We are already looking forward to the Marathon next year!
