Volunteer Info!

Thank you!

This Halloween invite your friends and family to help those less fortunate. For 9 years, the YMCA Creepy Crawl 5k Run/Walk has helped raise money to support and help provide opportunities for lower income families to participate in YMCA programs and membership. All funds raised stay right here in our community and will provide a hand up to a family in need. We need your help making the Creepy Crawl 5k run smoothly! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
