AARP Maine has announced numerous upcoming events on our social media accounts, including our Facebook page, as well as here on our website.
Until Saturday, September 26th: AARP is excited to announce that we are partnering with Portland Trails on their "Trail to Prevail" Virtual 10K that is happening now & will be held until Saturday, September 26th! Since Portland Trails can't hold their annual September fundraiser "Trail to Ale 10K Race & Run" this year, their hope is that, if you love the trails and can support them, you'll participate in this new event. All the details, including a link to register, can be found here.
