Get your green on for the Y’s annual Leprechaun Loop! Sign up to run on March 14th in the 10k or 5k run. Race day festivities also include a 2k Fun Walk and awards for the best dressed! Individuals, children, and families of all fitness levels race along the riverfront. Don your holiday attire, bring your family & friends and join in on this fun community event! We will have snacks, festive music, fun photo opportunities & more! Make note* You don’t have to participate in the Blue Water Run Series to participate in the Leprechaun Loop – participate in one, a few, or all! It’s up to you!
How are you making a difference by participating? Proceeds from the Leprechaun Loop help support youth programming at the Y. Children and teens learn values and positive behaviors and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow. Thank you for making a difference in our youth, right here in our community!
