After a tremendous amount of thought, St. Mary's has elected to forego an in-person Commit to Get Fit this year and instead arrange for the best virtual event possible! Any participants who have already registered who wish to have their registration fees refunded will be offered a full refund; however, we are hopeful that folks will join in through virtual efforts. All registrants will be given an event t-shirt and other giveaways. The first 100 registrants will still receive a specially designed long sleeve shirt.
We are most hopeful that people will join in and participate! All monies raised will be going to an incredibly important program: St. Mary's Nutrition Center and its programs. The Nutrition Center has been instrumental in helping those who need it to find healthy food during these difficult times. They are serving many more families that ever before as families find themselves in situations of food insecurity.
There are many ways YOU CAN VIRTUALLY PARTICIPATE! During mission week for St. Mary's, Oct. 16 - 24 we ask that each of our participants complete their Commit to Get Fit wearing their t-shirts and make a short video that they can send to us.
St. Mary's is proud to care for the people of Central Maine. The support of our local communities helps us to provide the high quality of care that is essential to our mission of compassionate healing. The health and well-being of our community is at the core of our mission. Fitness is an integral part of building a healthy community, and we invite you to Join us in October, 2020!

We believe deeply in the inherent worthiness of each person and work to create caring, safe environments where people can thrive.
St. Mary's Nutrition Center (NC) places value in strengthening community connections, addressing root causes, nurturing a sense of place, and facilitating a deeper commitment to equity across our community. The NC was founded by St. Mary's Health System in Lewiston, Maine in 2006 to promote community health through organizing, advocacy and education. Although the NC was formed in 2006, it houses the Lots to Gardens program, which has provided gardening and food access programming in Lewiston since 1999.
The NC believes that everyone deserves access to healthy food, as a fundamental right. Failing to address this basic need has far reaching impacts, for the individual and the community. The NC intentionally uses food as a tool for community building, leadership and youth development, and neighborhood revitalization. Through our work, we’ve realized that equity in our food system is deeply tied to inequity within our community, and that a whole-person, and whole-community, approach is critical to creating long-term change. By weaving together direct support with education and community change strategies, the NC builds resiliency at an individual, family, and community level.
