Looking for a fun, healthy family event this weekend? Make sure to come and check out the Ventura Family YMCA 14th Annual Fun & Fitness 5k! The family friendly event is going on this Saturday, August 16th, starting at 8 a.m. and running through 10:30 a.m.
The 3.1 mile race is a fun event that helps benefit the Open Doors program of the YMCA, which helps provide scholarships to children in need. Make sure to sign up the whole family to enjoy all that the event has to offer. There are special rates for families who sign up together, or a $40 fee for those who sign up alone. Each family sign up discount includes two adults, and any dependent children for only $85. Running bibs are available to pick up the morning of the race. For all those participating in the event, there is also a free continental breakfast that is available.
Registration for the race starts at 7 a.m. (if you sign up the day of the race,) while the race begins at 8 a.m. All participants of the race must sign a waiver before running, and those under 18 must provide a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
The YMCA provides many benefits for children and adults in the community, particularly in financial assistance for people from all over. They provide youth sports, child care, swim lessons, summer camp, overnight camp, parent-child activities, and teen leadership activities for people in the community, as well as many more programs. All members of the YMCA receive the same membership benefits, whether they are receiving financial assistance or not.
Make sure to visit the YMCA website to pre-register for the race.
Enhanced Landscape Management would like to encourage you and your family to participate in this fun, local event to help benefit the YMCA.
