RUN UNITED

The Young Leaders Circle of United Way of Rhode Island invites you to RUN UNITED with us at the Citizens Bank Pell Bridge Run. Donations made to the United Way team will benefit children in afterschool programs throughout the state. Our goal is to raise $5,000 to support high-quality after school programs. Sadly, not every child in Rhode Island has a safe place to go when the bell rings at 3 p.m., together we can help change this by supporting a classroom full of children.
