“Southcoast Health is proud to support the Aquidneck 10K, right here in the community where we work and live,” said Southcoast Health Cardiologist Dr. Robert Schwengel in a statement.  “We are excited to partner with Grey Matter Marketing to help grow awareness and participation in the important events that encourage health and well-being in our community.”

For every registered runner or walker participating in the 2020 Southcoast Health Aquidneck 10K, a portion of their registration fee will be donated to the Norman Bird Sanctuary.

The 6.2-mile course will start and finish at Sachuest Beach. Participants will run or walk alongside beach grass and sand dunes, down Sachuest Point, passing the Norman Bird Sanctuary on Hanging Rock Road, as well as stunning homes and historic churches, showcasing the beauty of Aquidneck Island. All participants in the 2020 Southcoast Health Aquidneck 10K will receive a custom-designed event shirt, and finishers will be awarded medals at the finish line.
