Superheroes can't be denied!   The ultimate social distance event!  For the fifth year,  UPS Employee Kevin Fitzpatrick has camped on the roof of Patriot Subaru,  each time determined to stay up as long as it takes to reach his fundraising goal.  100% of the donations goes to STRIVE, the South Portland organization that works with teens and young adults with developmental disabilities.

Kevin's average length of stay is 7 days to hit his goal.  Through high heat, driving rain, and howling wind, as well as beautiful sunsets and starry nights, he has maintained camp. 

The 2020 goal was $45,000.  In the 177th hour, he reached the goal!   However, the donations kept creeping in, and soon topped $51,500!   This brings the 5 year total to $208,870.

Kevin is the leader, but it surely takes the amazing STRIVE crew who puts in many hours of ground support,  as well as the many sponsors who contribute to the cause.
