For the second year in a row, the Miracle Mile will take place in downtown Houlton as part of Houlton's Midnight Madness Celebration!

The race is set up to raise funds and awareness to aid in the research for curing Neuroblastoma and Diamond Blackfan Anemia. The families of the late Makenna Ward and Maggie Rudnicki, who is currently dealing with Diamond Blackfan Anemia, are teaming up to once again host the Miracle Mile: Makenna and Maggie's Race for Research. And you're invited to lace up your sneakers and hit the pavement on Thursday, July 3rd in downtown Houlton!


The race is once again during Houlton's Midnight Madness. Check in starts at 4:00 p.m. and goes until 5:30 p.m. Walkers and runners will need to meet at Military Street Baptist Church. The race will start at 6 p.m. Runners will line up first  and the walkers will fill in behind.

The one-mile race will finish is at the intersection of Main and Court Streets. An Awards Ceremony will be held immediately afterward at the former County Junction Market and Bakery store.

Registration is open now. You're encouraged to register online in advance of the race as there will only be a small window in time to register at the event.

The community has really rallied around the families of these two little girls. Let's help keep Makenna's memory alive!
