The Washington County Family YMCA will be hosting their annual 5k fundraiser on September 26th, 2015 to support their annual campaign.
Join the Y and partner WSLM Classic Hits Radio as they let loose in the 3rd annual charitable 5k event. This year, the 5k will take you “Back to the 80’s” as you move and groove the rhythm of the beats provided by WSLM. Participants are encouraged to come dressed in their best 80’s apparel and join in for the Warm Up Party scheduled for 7:45 am.
The race starts at 8:30 am, and will be followed by the Kids Fun Run, healthy treats, and vendors to visit. Awards will follow for top finishers and best dressed.
“We are really looking forward to a fun event,” said Kristy Purlee, the Quality Membership Director at the Washington County Family YMCA, and Event Organizer. “This event not only promotes fun and health, it also promotes social responsibility,” said Purlee. “In 2014, our charitable organization contributed $40,000 in financial assistance to individuals who otherwise would not have been able to participate in our programs and membership. We want to ensure that everyone has a chance to be a part of our cause—regardless of their financial situation.”
The YMCA offers financial assistance to families and individuals to ensure that everyone is able to participate in their mission. All proceeds raised from the 5k event will aid in making the financial assistance program possible.
