Here is YOUR opportunity to support one of these amazing runners on their journey to raise funds for inclusion programming at NCYMCA, keeping our programs open to ALL - regardless of ability to pay.

The eleventh annual Citizens Pell Bridge Run will be held on Sunday, October 16, 2022, at 7:15 AM. Starting in Jamestown and finishing in downtown Newport, this point-to-point event is open to runners and walkers of all ages and speeds! The 4-mile road race and walk is the only day of the year pedestrians are permitted to cross the famous Newport Pell Bridge. 100% of net proceeds from this event will go to support local nonprofit organizations through the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Foundation. Gather your friends and family for a day of fun, fitness and stunning views!
The Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Foundation has provided support to dozens of nonprofit organizations throughout Rhode Island through the funds raised by the annual Citizens Pell Bridge Run and the 4 Bridges Ride events. Each year, approximately 30 partner organizations are identified to receive foundation support.
