For the past seven years, the Maine Vets 5K has raised $28,000 for the Resident Activities Fund at Maine Veterans’ Homes – Scarborough. This fund allows our Veterans and their family member residents to remain active members of their community – attend musical and theater performances, have meals out, enjoy entertainment brought into the Home and much more.
What started as a small event has grown to include hundreds of participants in the 2019 event, and something we all look forward to coming together to celebrate – both the MVH Scarborough and greater running communities. While the Maine Vets 5K usually means music, raffles, snacks and more, for the safety of all, this year’s event is going to be a virtual one. The sentiment behind it, however, remains the same – to support our Veteran Heroes and their family members who reside at MVH Scarborough.
