Bangor—An estimated 23 percent of Maine children are either overweight or obese.¹ EMMC is joining the fight against childhood obesity by promoting healthy lifestyles among kids, with activities such as the annual Cub Tracks Triathlon. With the highest number of children registered ever, the fourth annual Cub Tracks Triathlon is scheduled for Saturday, April 20 at the University of Maine in Orono.
