LifeFlight of Maine is excited to announce that registration is open for the 2021 Cross for LifeFlight, taking place August 1-31, 2021. The Cross for LifeFlight event aims to raise $450,000 to expand and sustain LifeFlight, Maine’s only emergency medical helicopter service.

Previously an in-person swim event known as the “Islesboro Crossing,” the 2021 Cross for LifeFlight has been expanded and reimagined as a statewide, self-led outdoor adventure challenge. Over the past four years, the Cross for LifeFlight has raised over $2 million to upgrade and standardize LifeFlight’s fleet of helicopters, purchase the specialized equipment needed on board, and to fund important clinical education and training programs across the state.
