“We want to give every child the opportunity to learn new skills, develop character and make friends,” said YMCA of Central Kentucky Director of Community Health Corey Donohoo. “The Y is a place for all, regardless of financial ability. Last year, the YMCA of Central Kentucky provided over $1 million in scholarship support to send youth to our summer camps. 100% of the race proceeds will benefit kids to ensure they have a summer they will remember for a lifetime.” In 2017, the Y served over 2,000 kids in summer camps.
