Race to Stop Extinction

Help raise money for the Endangered Species Coalition on May 23 by joining this 5K, which follows Portland, Maine’s most popular trail, Back Cove. Kids can get involved, too, with a fun run just for them. The race is a sustainable event with recycling bins, 100 percent online registration, no single-use bottles or cotton T-shirts allowed, locally grown food and more.
