Ms. Acadia Gantz to run Ultra Marathon in Support of MMFC

Acadia Gantz is an ultrarunner, running coach and midwife. Inspired by a strong family value of caring for children, Acadia became a midwife because she believes that pregnancy and postpartum is a pivotal moment in a family’s life. Throughout her work she carries the philosophy that folks deserve to be heard, allowed to make autonomous decisions about their care and come away feeling empowered. When this happens, new parents and families are empowered to raise their kiddos in the best way they can. 


This fall she will be running 100 miles across the Utah mountains to raise money and awareness for Medical Missions for Children. Medical Missions for Children is a Massachusetts based non-profit that provides life saving dental work and surgeries for under-privileged children and young-adults in countries around the world. Acadia was inspired to run for MMFC because of her belief that caring for all children, through their entire childhood, is deeply important. 


A native of Utah, Acadia now lives in Western Maine with her partner, Ken, and Labrador, Finley. You can follow Acadia’s running journey on Instagram @trailrunningbabycatcher

2023 MMFC Charity Golf Tournament

This is the 25th year of golfing and giving at the Marshfield Country Club. This annual Charity tournament has become the primary fund-raising event for Medical Missions for Children. Ten years ago, we changed the name of the tournament to recognize Kevin G. Mcguire, who was an active member of the Marshfield Country Club and for years the heart and soul of the MMFC charity tournament.

The tournament typically fields 120 – 130 players and is always one of MMFC most successful charity events of the year.  This year it is the primary charity event for MMFC. The play is a shambles format and includes a boxed lunch, raffles, dinner and auctions in the evening. 

For more information about the tournament, sponsorship opportunities and donations for our auctions,

please email Roberta Anslow at or call 978-549-5449

What is cleft lip & palate and why is it so prevalent in certain areas?

Cleft lip and cleft palate occur when tissues in the baby’s face and mouth don’t fuse properly. Normally, the tissues that make up the lip and palate fuse together in the second and third months of pregnancy. But in babies with cleft lip and cleft palate, the fusion never takes place or occurs only part way, leaving an opening (cleft).
