Run By The Bay 5K run/walk

Our mission is to provide high-quality early childhood education that emphasizes developmental learning, social relationships, family involvement and care for the environment. Guided by the values of inclusion and equity, the school aims to serve a diverse population in terms of socioeconomic status and cultural background and ability levels. The race dedicates all profits to the scholarship fund providing financial assistance to make attending HCNS available to as many families as possible.

The Annual Leavitt’s Mill Free Health Center Spring Fun Run/Walk 5K will take place on a scenic route along the Saco River in the Historic Bar Mills area. The run starts at the Health Center and proceeds down Egypt Road to the small bridge at the half way point, where the turnaround is. There are a few small hills, and some winding turns amidst shaded trees and the shore of beautiful Saco River.
