Pen Bay Medical Center and Waldo County General Hospital announced that Brooks Running made a Run B’Cause grant to the hospitals’ Journey to Health program. Brooks Running awards Run B’Cause grants to charitable organizations that help people get out and active.

Through this grant, Journey to Health received vouchers for 10 pairs of sneakers to distribute to community members who might not otherwise be able to purchase their own to be active. Journey to Health worked with schools across Knox and Waldo counties to select 10 middle school-aged students to receive the shoes.
