Cross for LifeFlight

Originally created as the Islesboro Crossing, what was once a rigorous swim across Penobscot Bay had to be modified in 2020 due to the pandemic and was intentionally reimagined in 2021 as the Cross for LifeFlight. This annual event, which takes place during the entire month of August, is a self-directed outdoor challenge for individuals and teams and relies on peer-to-peer fundraising and sponsors to raise critically needed funds for LifeFlight of Maine.

Whether you love to challenge yourself or want to create a memorable experience with friends, family, or coworkers, the Cross for LifeFlight is open to everyone and every activity— hiking, cycling, swimming, kayaking, running, and sailing! You have the flexibility to choose your favorite solo or team activity, and complete your Crossing, however, whenever, and wherever you choose during the month of August. New this year, in addition to your individual Crossing plans we invite you to join us for an in-person event of various activities!

Since its inception, the Cross for LifeFlight has become one of LifeFlight of Maine’s most important fundraisers of the year…and we count on people like YOU to join us. To learn more about the event, including sponsorship, partnership, or participation you can be involved with the Cross for LifeFlight, please visit the event website at or contact Ashley MacMillan, the Director of Annual Giving at 207-300-5832.
