Commit To Get Fit Challenge – Walk/Run
PLEASE JOIN US FOR OUR SECOND ANNUAL COMMIT TO GET FIT CHALLENGE 2015!
The health and well-being of our community is core to our mission and we are excited to offer this special event starting and finishing from St. Mary's Medical Building in Auburn. You can walk in the 3K or run the 5K or 10K and be part of a great opportunity to get fit and support a worthy cause. In addition, we will have some displays and demonstrations for a healthy lifestyle, as well as fun activities for the children!
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Marguerite d'Youville Fund for the Needy*, which assists people in financial crisis. In 2014, we disbursed over $35,000 from the fund to assist 337 people.
It is a visible way to continue the mission of St. Marguerite d'Youville and the Sisters of Charity of Saint-Hyacinthe, Canada.
St. Mary's is proud to care for the people of Central Maine. The support of our local communities helps us to provide the high quality of care that is essential to our mission of compassionate healing.
The journey to a healthy life is built on hard work, commitment, and determination. We encourage you, your friends and family to register for this exciting and fun event!

*In celebration of St. Marguerite d'Youville and as a visible sign of her compassionate love and concern for the poor, the Marguerite d'Youville Fund for the Needy was founded in 1994 by St. Mary's staff as an on-going source of funds to help those in need with basic necessities such as food, medications, and transportation. In 1737, Marie-Marguerite d'Youville and her son converted their home into a dwelling for the poor and elderly. Soon, other like-minded women joined them and in 1755, these women were formally recognized as the "Soeur Grises" (Grey Nuns), the Sisters of Charity of Montreal, Canada. In 1878, the sisters were asked to come to Lewiston, Maine to begin a French-speaking school, and eventually a hospital too. In1889, the Sisters of Charity founded the first Catholic hospital in Maine (eventually known as St. Mary's General Hospital).
