"The new Summer Race Series for Kids, provides children the chance to accomplish a goal while making new friends and feeling like they belong,” says Roxanne Davis, Community Liaison “And because proceeds from the event go to local Y programs like life-saving swim lessons and after school programs, it supports youth development and wellness beyond race day.”

Together as a community, the race series is made possible by generous sponsors, community members and volunteers.
