16 Oct 2015 Newport Marathon raises $65,000 for non-profits
The Newport Marathon, held October 11, was a tremendous success. More than 2,000 runners from across the country enjoyed a beautiful day in Rhode Island, while helping raise more than $65,000 for local non-profit organizations. Gray Matter Marketing donated $50,000 to five local charities and encouraged giving through a dedicated Crowdrise page, adding up to a rewarding day for the Ocean State.
Congratulations to all the participants and thank you very much to all the staff, volunteers, local officials and police departments for all of their efforts to make this special day possible.
