Committe Volunteer Opportunities for 2015!

We are looking for volunteer committee members to help us make this the awesome event our community has come to love! Consider giving back so we can help other, disadvantaged families, afford an opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a local YMCA membership. Please contact the 2015 race director, Pam Wolfe, at pamrwolfe@aol.com or send us a facebook message. We look forward to having your help!

We want to extend our gratitude to the sponsors, participants and volunteers that help make this such a great event, and amazing financial assistance we can provide to those in need.  Help us do more this year!
