WESTBROOK — Proceeds from a road race Saturday morning during the Westbrook Together Days celebration will benefit a local firefighter who is suffering from a neurological disorder.

Lisa MacVane, 36, who joined the Westbrook Fire Department in 2006, has been in and out of the hospital due to a condition called panintestinal neuropathy, according to Beth Meccariello of Acadia Insurance, the race’s sponsor.

The Run The ‘Brook fun run begins at 8 a.m. and the 5-kilometer road race begins at 8:30 a.m. Both races start at Riverbank Park.

The two-day Westbrook Together Days celebration begins this afternoon, with a carnival and live entertainment at the park from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m.

On Saturday, there will be a pancake breakfast at 7 a.m., a parade at 10 a.m., an auction at noon and fireworks at 9:45 p.m.
