Maine Marathon

Robbie Foundation named Maine Marathon Charity

Robbie Foundation is excited to announce that they have been named the main beneficiary of Maine Marathon's fund raising efforts for 2014 and 2015.

Since 1997, the Maine Marathon, Half Marathon and Marathon Relay and its participants have raised more than $3,000,000 for charity. Every other year, event organizers designate a local charity as the main beneficiary of race proceeds for a two-year cycle, and entrants are invited to make additional donations to that charity. Proceeds from the 2014 and 2015 races will go to benefit the Robbie Foundation.

We are very excited for this opportunity and are grateful to Maine Marathon for selecting us for this benefit.

Special Thanks to Davis Family Foundation

Tablet computers open 'new world' for special-needs students in Scarborough, South Portland.

Morrison Center teacher Paul Agnew circled the room, extending an iPad so his students could dress a snowman. Behind him, the image appeared on a screen as it went from naked white to fully clothed with a carrot nose.

Sitting in front of him, students Mindy Bisson, Cassy Gannett and Tommy LaBerge focused on picking wardrobe items and saying them out loud as they touched the iPad screen. More »
