5-2-1-0 Events Are Heating Up As Summer Approachs

In just over two weeks we’ll be celebrating the first day of summer. The school year is coming to a close, families are making plans to play outside and bathing suits are being pulled from the depths of our closets. Here’s a sneak peak at what our calendar looks like this month.

  • Dad and daughter LGLet’s Go! has teamed up with local entrepreneur Kyle Poissonnier, founder of Be The Katalyst on a line of athletic clothing. Kyle, who creates clothing for a cause, reached out to us after his mom, a teacher at Mill Stream Elementary, recommended 5-2-1-0 as a worthy cause. Let’s Go! will receive 25% of the profit, which we will reinvest in healthy options for Maine’s children. Visit bethekatalyst.com to view men’s and women’s tank tops, a unisex t-shirt and women’s athletic leggings.  
  • On Saturday, June 20th Southern Maine Health Care will hold the third annual Gary’s Walk, a fun, three-mile, family-friendly walk with activity stops where families can play games and win prizes. All proceeds from the walk will benefit 5-2-1-0 Let’s Go! York County. The walk remembers Gary Sullivan, an advocate for children’s well-being; what better way to honor that legacy than to support his region’s leading initiative promoting healthy eating and active living for children, youth, and families? You can visit the event page to register.
  • On Saturday, June 27th, Let’s Go! Kennebec and Let’s Go! Somerset have organized a fun and active day of family disc golf. This FREE event is part of Inland Hospital’s Family Fun Series and will take place at Quaker Hill Disc Golf in Fairfield Maine. Venture out and try something new from 10:00 to 2:00. More info here.

Summers are short so make the most of them by getting active outside.  For more 5-2-1-0 events visit our site
