New Ro Runners  
NewRo Runners, the club that organizes the Paine to Pain half marathon, is collecting donations to support health care providers during the COVID-19 crisis.  We will coordinate the purchase of individually packaged healthy meals from local establishments to be delivered to health care professionals at local hospitals. NewRo Runners will match donations up to a total of $5,000.


Our essential service providers have been on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19, demonstrating extraordinary dedication, stamina, and bravery.  Every Friday night at 7:00pm let's show our appreciation by standing outside our homes or opening our windows and clapping loudly for our health care heroes.  You can also use a whistle, blow a horn, bang a pan, or whatever works for you.  Let’s make some noise!  If you record your applause and share to social media and use the hashtag #NewRoStrong
