Elaine was a nurse at the Milbridge Medical Center for over 30 years. She loved caring for others and was greatly loved and admired in return. Her gentle smile, wry sense of humor and unfailing compassion endeared her to all. Both her patients and the greater Milbridge community considered her the “heart” of the Milbridge Medical Center. Sadly, after caring for others for so many years, Elaine lost her own courageous battle against breast cancer in February 2009 at age 70.
Proceeds from this 5K benefit support the Elaine Hill Memorial Nursing Scholarships. This 5K race/walk is on a level tarred surface, comfortable for all ages and accessible for strollers.
