Some folks took to the streets of Bangor on foot today, all for a good cause.It was the first annual 5k walk-run to support Adoptive and Foster Families of Maine.Participants either donated a minimum of $30 or asked their friends and family to sponsor them.Executive Director Bette Hoxie says this walk is a great way to get information out.Hoxie says with times being so tough financially, It it hard for folks to provide the extra things.So she says this fundraiser will help them out a lot.” Well this is huge. We get seventy percent of whatever comes in. And it looks like it’s a pretty significant take for what is a small group.”After the walk, participants were treated to a BBQ and some prizes were given out.
