The Peanut Butter and Jelly Kids Fun Run is back for a sixth year event! Organized by YMCA volunteers as a part of the Y's Togetherhood Initiative, this initiative allows Y members to collectively give back to the Travelers Rest community. This event will support the North Greenville Crisis Ministry. Each summer, hundreds of kids are not in school for lunch and there is a huge need for easily prepared meals for these children. One large need is for jars of peanut butter and jelly.
