~AUGUST 2018~

A Place To Start was voted the recipient of the   3rd Annual Spurling Charity 5K!      

The Spurling Charity 5k was founded by Spurling Fitness, a performance and fat loss training gym in Kennebunk, Maine. This 5K race was created  as another way to give back to our community and to help a local charity or nonprofit.  Every year, the members of Spurling Fitness vote on a local nonprofit or charity to be the profit beneficiaries.  In 2018, we were voted in!
A very special Thank you to Spurling Fitness for all your hard work in putting this annual event on and for helping to support our community!  Your efforts do not go unnoticed!!

We would like to extend a very special and heartfelt THANK YOU to the Moxham Family.

Through their generous donation, we were able to renovate and create a more open space here for gathering!

Kate’s memory will live on in the many smiles and connections that are made in the new space!
