August 2019 News & Events

Register to play in one of the most fun charity events of the year – Gritty’s 12th Gripped & Ripped Golf Tournament at Riverside Golf Course in Portland, Maine! This year the tournament will benefit Maine native Rachel Dufresne, who after a lifetime of heart complications and a common but unsuccessful heart surgery in April of this year is permanently paralyzed from the diaphragm down. Rachel now faces extraordinary financial burdens related to this condition. As such, we want to help and invite you to please aid us in the effort. Proceeds will be donated to Rachel from this event. We’ll have food and beer, a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, and prizes! Register or sponsor the event here:

Run a race and earn a $1 beer! The third and final Triple Crown 5k race, the Bridge Run, is Sunday, 25th, and we’ll be opening an hour early at 10am! Come in after the race and get one beer for $1 when you display your race bib. Register and learn more at
