The Trek Across Maine, the nation's largest fundraiser for the American Lung Association, will be a virtual event in 2021.

According to the KJ, the 37th annual Trek Across Maine which had been scheduled to take place from June 18th through June 20th, will instead be virtual.

Similar to the in-person event, participants in the virtual Trek can choose to cycle 60 miles, 120 miles, or 180 miles.  The deadline for completing your "trek" is June 30th.
