Sponsors are integral in the success of the MRH Health & Wellness Fair.  With the support of our sponsors, we are able to further invest in health and wellness in the Katahdin Region and continue to provide this event to the public free of charge.

Sponsorship dollars are used to help fund the expenses of this event including, but not limited to, the use of the gym, marketing and promotion—including print and television advertising, table rentals, purchase supplies, etc.  Last year’s event cost just under $10,000 to produce.  With your financial assistance, we aim to incorporate new attractions and educational opportunities to keep our audience coming back year after year; each time learning more about how to stay well!

We would like to thank our sponsors, listed below, who helped make this event possible!
