It's time again to lace up those running shoes and enjoy some of the most scenic courses in New England. We're partnering with the Amica Newport Marathon & Half-Marathon and Citizens Bank Pell Bridge Run again this year, and we need YOUR help!

We are in need of teams of runners and walkers to have some healthy fun while raising funds for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center. All you have to do is join one or both of our race teams, then share with friends and family who can then sponsor your run or walk.

To join a race team (or both!) or give to Team MLK:
