“The Color Run is becoming one of the most fun events that we put on here at the Wellsville YMCA”, notes Tyler Green, Associate Executive Director of the Wellsville YMCA. “It’s awesome that we have such a collaborative team that works incredibly hard to put on big events like this for our community. Incorporating this fun run/walk with Healthy Kids Day just made sense!

What better way to celebrate finishing a 5k than with a free community event that promotes healthy living for the youth within our communities. All of us here at the Y can’t wait to see the skies filled with color and happy faces all over town. See you Saturday!”
