Member Highlights
Team Long Run
In the words of one of our former athletes, running helps a kid “discover their own worth and capability.” Running is one of the few remaining activities available to kids that unfailingly reward consistency and sacrifice. Please re-read that last sentence and consider how important that is today. Running has always been a refiner’s fire; the hotter it burns, the purer the gold.

Southern Maine Retirement Services

Southern Maine Retirement Services was started in 2005 by Mark and Sonya Allen as a result of a very personal experience for one of its founders. A former Medicare beneficiary himself, Mark had at a very young age (28) been diagnosed with severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This is a painful disease. Within two years he was forced onto disability, experienced a dramatic drop in income, and spent the next year and a half living between his bed and the chair.
