Race for YMCA 5K/10K Presented by Chemical Bank

Proceeds from the race will benefit the Benton Harbor-St. Joseph YMCA's Annual Campaign. The annual campaign provides the opportunity for hundreds of children in our community to attend Y programs, including summer camp, after-school programs, and preschool to name a few, at little or no cost through financial assistance.
