The Commit to Get Fit Is Now the Commit to Community!

Cornerstone Cornerstone News

After input from participants, sponsors and volunteers, St. Joseph Healthcare Foundation has chosen to change the name of its signature event to Commit to Community, Supporting Victims of Violence & Abuse.

The name has been changed to emphasize the charitable nature of the event, which is to raise money for the St. Joseph Healthcare sexual assault forensic examiner (SAFE) program. We hope that participants this year will engage people in their social networks to help raise money.

“Last year, the Commit to Get Fit was a huge success, with approximately $180,000 raised for the hospital’s SAFE program,” says Brad Coffey, St. Joseph Foundation President. “However, only a small portion came from people asking their friends to give. We believe our old name did not lend itself to peer-to-peer fundraising, and we are hopeful this change will make things easier to ask their friends to pitch in.”

The person who raises the most for the cause by June 30 will receive two suite tickets to a Waterfront Concert of their choice in Bangor this summer.

This year’s event will include the Kids Obstacle Course, the 10K Run, the 5K Run, and the 5K Walk, and all events will take place on the morning of Sunday, September 29.

If you would like to sponsor the event, please get in touch with Brad Coffey at 207-990-1740 or click here to learn of the opportunities online.
