What does this race support?
Your fees support the YMCA Annual Campaign. Through public support and contributions to the Gaston County Family YMCA and its branches, we are able to provide access to quality programs and services to everyone regardless of ability, gender, age, or socio-economic status. We thrive on serving as many people in the community as possible, but cannot do so without your help. Every day nearly 100 programs and services help shape our neighborhoods, but the call for assistance keeps growing.
