BENEFITING: Boys Clubs & Girls Clubs of Newport County, Inc.
EVENT: Newport 10 Miler 2017
EVENT DATE: Jun 04, 2017
This race will benefit two causes which have become very important to me. As an educator, runner, and proud Rhode Islander, I am happy to proclaim that I will be running to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Newport County and the Fort Adams Trust.
It is with pleasure, that I have worked with the Boys and Girls club for two summers here in Newport. I have seen the positive impact its programs can have on the children of Newport County. According to the event page, "It is with pride and privilege our event will help this local organization achieve their mission of inspiring and enabling all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens."
Newport is a place that I have called home for about 6 years now and each day I find something new and even more wonderful about this City by the Sea. This event will benefit the Fort Adams Trust which serves to protect and promote historic places on the Bay and in Newport. Running in this city is important to me, so it only makes sense that I am now running FOR this city.
