29th Annual Rye Derby &
Healthy Kids Day
Sunday, April 30, 2017
Thank you so much for fundraising for the Rye Y!
The money raised for the Derby supports the Y Cares Financial Aid Program which enable us to keep a powerful promise to the communities we serve: no-one will be turned away from a Y program or activity because he or she can’t pay. In 2016 alone, the Rye Y awarded over $455,000 in financial assistance to 354 individuals and families in need. Thanks to our Y Cares Program, children can thrive at summer camp. Working parents can afford safe, nurturing child care. And seniors maintain their health through subsidized memberships.
Proceeds from the Derby also support the Rye Y’s community initiatives, which include pedestrian safety, senior health and fitness, chronic disease prevention and LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, to name a few.
Please click on the "I Want to Run for the Y!" tab and you will be directed to another page where you can register to create your own fundraising page to share with your friends, family and coworkers. You can determine your own fundraising goals (the default is $5.00).
You can also donate yourself at the "I Want to Donate Now!" page.
