Other activities and amenities at the event include free massages by Healy Chiropractic in Brewer, an outdoor dodgeball challenge with an 11am start (must have 8 teams to play – register by emailing us), an appearance by Old Town Police and Fire with a fire truck and a police cruiser, and a bounce house/inflatable games will be available for kids to use. These are just some of the free activities and amenities available at this year’s event for all participants to use.

Teams are a minimum of $100 ($10 per person), with the option to add an additional person for an additional $10.
