We've got BIG news!
The Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England has been selected as one of the recipients of the Central Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce Rocky Point 5K, which will take place on saturday, June 17, 2017. We are looking for participants to run/walk the 5k (that's 3.1 miles!) and also for those interested in volunteering to help out the day of the race. We would love to have a Girl Scout team participate and represent at the event!
Those participating will enjoy a scenic run (or walk!) by Narragansett Bay along the City of Warwick’s mile of shoreline in the former amusement park at Rocky Point. Runners and walkers of all ages are welcome! The course is USATF (USA Track & Field Inc.) sanctioned and certified - it's a great event for competitive runners, families and friends.
We are extremely grateful to be one of the 2017 benefitting recipients of the proceeds raised, along with the American Cancer Society in Rhode Island. The race proceeds donated to GSSNE will expand the Marathon in a Month program, which focuses on getting Girl Scouts moving and being outdoors, living active and healthy lifestyles, learning about good nutrition and their own bodies.
In addition, a donation will be made to the Rocky Point Foundation and the Warwick Neck Elementary School. PRE-REGISTRATION IS PREFERRED

If you are interested in volunteering for the event, please contact us and we will put you in touch with the correct staff to get you set-up as a volunteer that day!
