NWBRV Partners with N E Distance

NeighborWorks Blackstone River Valley (NWBRV) announces its new partnership with New England Distance, a community-based distance running project.  The organization, based in Providence, RI, encourages competition-level distance runners to locate, train, and be a part of local communities on their path to success. 


New England Distance provides athletes with a supportive environment including free housing, a stipend for training gear, training facilities for indoor and outdoor workouts, and access to medical support.

Through their partnership with NWBRV and the Woonsocket After School Coalition, athletes will be matched with one of several after school youth organizations to work part-time, encouraging runners to become involved in their communities while being paid for their time.  Athletes are asked to commit at least two years to the program.
