Stockton Springs road race this weekend

STOCKTON SPRINGS - Tough budget times are forcing some first responders to think outside the municipal budget for some funding.

It's called the "Run for Your Life Road Race."

 

This year marks the third year the Stockton Springs Ambulance Service is sponsoring the road race. The race is this coming Saturday and there's still time to register.

 

Ambulance service director, Charles Hare, said "All the money raised this year will got to equipment fund. We just bought a new ambulance. We want to upgrade some of our equipment on the ambulance and possibly some apparel for us for the wintertime."

 

The race raised nearly $5,000 last year, helping to pay for CPR equipment and and CPR classes.
