Front Runners RI, a group of diverse LGBT walkers and runners, celebrated its 20th year by teaming up with Rhode Runner Providence to hold a free 5K for Youth Pride Inc. (YPI) last month. Rhode Runner, the athletic footwear company that has been meeting the needs of local runners for nearly 15 years, holds monthly 5K races to benefit community organizations. The groups raised $512 to support YPI,an organization devoted to providing services and support to LGBTQ youth.
