Great Support for Summer Running Series

As published in the South County Independent

LETTERS-We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the volunteers from the Narragansett Running Association, and student volunteers from Narragansett Pier Middle and High School who helped make the Summer Youth Track Series an exciting event attended by more than 350 children each week.

We would also like to extend a sincere thank you to Belmont Market who sponsored the series and donated buckets of watermelon each week, the very-talented Dave Larocque who volunteered as our emcee and disc jockey each week, and George Ross for taking amazing photos at each meet.

The meets would not be possible and free for all children without the generous support from the following sponsors: USA Track and Field Foundation, Betsy and Peter Barbera, F/V Lightning Bay, Coastal Plumbing, Sun Coat Painting, Sullivan & Sullivan P.C., Timpson Excavating, South County Fence Co., M & F Athletic, RB Home Improvement, Teresa Tanzi, Shoreline Podiatry, Camire's Athletic Soles, Endeavor Seafood, Veterinary Opthalmology, Crazy Burger, Arturo Joe's, Innovation Partners, Christopher & Regan Insurance, Narragansett Rubbish Removal, Narragansett Police IBPO #303, Maverick Software, Delta Consultants, Distefano Brothers Construction, Stedman & Kazounis, Laura Krekorian Architect, Pro-Change, Brainworks RI, Two Brothers Painting, Durkin Cottage Realty, Running Heritage, Cooper Construction, Susan and Joe Behl, Ric Thornton, John and Gwen LaRiviere, South County Woodworks, Carousel Industries, Pick Pockets, Buckley Heating & Cooling and Tori the Dog.
