Memorial Walk Set For Oct. 2

MILBRIDGE — The Women’s Health Resource Library in Milbridge will host the Second Annual Elaine Hill Memorial Walk on Saturday, Oct. 2.


Hill, a former nurse at the Milbridge Medical Center, died in February 2009 after a battle with breast cancer.

The entrance fee is $10. Walkers are also encouraged to collect donations from non-walkers. Contributions of any size are welcome. Pledge forms are available at the Women’s Health Resource Library, Narraguagus High School and local businesses.

Registration is at 9:30 a.m. at the Veterans Club in Milbridge.

The walk begins at 10 and will proceed along Fickett’s Point Road. The total distance is approximately three miles on a level grade.

A cookout will be held immediately following the event at the Milbridge town landing just below the Veterans Club.

All proceeds from the walk will benefit The Elaine Hill Memorial Scholarship.

The Women’s Health Resource Library, in collaboration with the Elaine Hill family, has established two annual nursing scholarships in her memory.

Participants should bring all collected donations to the registration table on Oct. 2.

Please make checks payable to WHRL.
