BAR HARBOR — The Great Strides Walk to Cure Cystic Fibrosis will be this Saturday, Sept. 24, starting at Conners Emerson School.
Check-in is at 8:30 a.m., and the race begins at 9 a.m. There is a 5-mile course and a new 3-mile course. Both walks will be marked and start at the same time.
The walk will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cystic fibrosis is a rare, genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system and afflicts three families in the Mount Desert Island community.
