COMMUNITY AND SPECIAL EVENTS DIRECTOR
I think people just love the YMCA and love to give
back to the community.
And one thing about this race is that all of the proceeds
support our annual campaign.
So that allows us fund such key programs in our community
and I think people really buy into that.
The run and walk features four different races including
a 5 mile run and 13 mile half marathon.
