About NE Distance
NE Distance is a New England based non-profit organization with a unique dual mission to promote health and wellbeing among children while providing support to post-collegiate athletes on a training path to top-level competition. NE Distance established an athlete-in-residence fellowship program in the city of Woonsocket, Rhode Island in 2012. The not-for-profit organization recruits top-level post-collegiate track athletes and provides them with housing, travel stipends, gear, physical therapy and places to train. When they are not training to represent New England at top level meets, each NE Distance athlete fellow works 16-20 hours per week in after-school programs, providing mentorship, coaching, tutoring and living within community to model good habits for health including physical activity and smart eating habits.
Through a partnership with NeighborWorks Blackstone Valley and the Woonsocket After-School Coalition, athletes will be matched with one of several after-school youth organizations. Working 16 to 20 hours per week will allow the runners to be involved with the community while training to represent us at national meets.
