|Frontrunners Rhode Island|
Frontrunners RI celebrates its 20th year by teaming up with Rhode Runner Providence to present the Free 5K for Youth Pride Inc. Rhode Runner, meeting the needs of local runners since 2001, holds a monthly 5K to benefit community organizations. On May 25th, the funds raised by the Free 5K will benefit YPI, an organization devoted to providing services and support to LGBTQQ youth (ages 23 and under).
How does a free event raise money? Good question! While registering for the event, at eventbrite.com, you have the opportunity to buy raffle tickets, or simply make a donation. The proceeds go directly to YPI. If you choose to just register for the race, it is absolutely free! You may also register on site, but you may have to stand in a line. Registering ahead of time puts you on the guest list. It is like an express pass!
The free 5K will take place at 6:30 PM in Blackstone Boulevard in Providence. There will be a timing clock provided by Rhode Runner, and it will keep running until the final participant crosses the line. Water and a sports drink will be provided also, and raffle prizes are donated by running apparel companies and local businesses.
Whether you’re a runner, a walker, or just an enthusiastic supporter, it is a great way to spend a late spring evening!
