NORTH KINGSTOWN – The Kent Hospital NK5K Road Race/Walk is set for Saturday, Sept. 7 in North Kingstown.
Kent Hospital will be the corporate sponsor for this event, which takes walkers and runners on a 5K (3.1-mile) route through North Kingstown.
“It is an honor to have Kent Hospital as a corporate sponsor for this race again for 2013,” said race organizer Charles Breagy. “The partnership with Kent Hospital further enhances the local community and this well-known event and Kent Hospital helps to raise this 5K to the next level of success.”
The road race and walk begins and ends at North Kingstown High School and usually attracts approximately 800 runners and walkers. In addition, a portion of funds raised through this road race will be donated back to the North Kingstown School Department for use in developing the town’s high school sports and school extracurricular activities.
