Rise 'n Shine Summer 5K
Join us Saturday, August 14 for our annual Rise ‘n Shine Walk & Run 5K and Little Rays of Sun 1K! This year, we are offering a hybrid model with both in-person and virtual run options. 
Rise ‘n Shine is our largest fundraiser of the year. Your support by running in the races endorses your belief in creating a better, happier community by providing youth programming, health and wellness, and an opportunity to give back. 
Join us as we race along the Saginaw River in beautiful Uptown Bay City! Or race with us virtually from August 1-14. We hope you got your beauty sleep, because it's time to RISE 'N SHINE!

"I first joined the YMCA when this new building opened about 10 years ago. That was the same time that I beat breast cancer. My main motivation for coming to the Y was to prevent cancer recurrence, and I think it's working because I haven't had any cancer return since I first survived it. But the Y has also become my family away from home. I joke around with the Front Desk staff, and I have met some great friends in the water aerobics classes, too. I'm a Y member not only for my health, but also my happiness."

"The Y is a great place to work. I've met so many great people and everyone is so kind. Shout out to my dad Bob Katt who still is one of the first ones at the Y every day. He is 88 years old and I believe the Y has kept him going. So very grateful to the YMCA--thank you!"
