Jeff Mullin, guidance counselor at Bonny Eagle High School, will be running on Oct. 14 in the the Mount Desert Island Marathon and is looking for people to sponsor the run.

All the money raised will be donated to the Bonny Eagle High School Aspirations Endowment, which will help students visit colleges, take college courses during high school, and fund scholarships for graduating seniors.

When asked why a marathon, Mullin said, “Running a marathon provides great lessons for students as they plan for the future beyond high school. Believe in yourself and that you can overcome others’ preconceived notions of what you can accomplish.

He continues by saying: “You can make a difference in the world. This is just a more overt example of how I hope to make a difference just by running 26 miles. You can make a difference by sponsoring me. Together, we can make a difference for this and every future graduating class at Bonny Eagle High School.”

No donation is too small. All checks can be made out to MSAD 6 and sent to: Jeff Mullin; Bonny Eagle High School; 700 Saco Road; Standish, ME 04084.
