2020 TREK ACROSS MAINE UPDATES DUE TO COVID-19
Out of an abundance of caution to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the American Lung Association has adjusted plans for the 2020 Trek Across Maine for the safety of our participants, volunteers, staff and partners. We will not be having a physical event on June 19 - 21, but we will offer a virtual Trek Across Maine option which you can participate in from now through June 30th. We hope that you will support our virtual event and stay connected with us. More details below!
Every Mile Counts
The Trek Across Maine will celebrate its 36th anniversary in 2020 with a virtual event. As the largest fundraising event of its kind in the nation for the American Lung Association, the Trek has raised more than $29 million in the past 35 years. This year a portion of the funds raised by the Trek Across Maine are supporting COVID-19 research. It was announced last week that the American Lung Association is launching a $25M initiative to end COVID-19 and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics.
The virtual Trek Across Maine encourages our Trekkers to stay active and enjoy time on their bike (practicing safe social distancing) while supporting the work of the American Lung Association. Please review the details below regarding how you can participate as a Virtual Trekker.
- Register today as a virtual participant ($15 fee).
- If you are currently registered for the 2020 Trek, you will automatically be converted to a virtual participant and do not need to register again. If you’d like to adjust your registration to be marked as inactive, please contact TrekAcrossMaine@Lung.org.
- Virtual trekkers can still earn their commemorative Trek t-shirt, accomplishment medal and commemorative bib number! Simply complete the $250 fundraising minimum by June 30 and your items will be mailed to you. The fundraising minimum has been adjusted for this year only to be sensitive to the current times during this pandemic.
- Get those miles in! Please remember to practice social distancing while spending time on your bike and working towards achieving your mileage goal of 60, 120 or 180 miles. Daily exercise is key to both lung health and mental health.

Volunteers Make it Happen

Although the physical Trek Across Maine has been adjusted this year, there are still ways that volunteers can support Trekkers and the work of the American Lung Association.
