The Race4Chase 26-Day Challenge is back in 2021!

As we did in 2019, our YMCAs in Southington and Cheshire will be looking to raise over $30k to support the R4C Program!

Starting TODAY, June 1, 2021, Mark Pooler, CEO will be running, biking or swimming 2.6 miles or 26-minutes for the next 26 days as part of our R4C 26-Day Challenge to support the Race4Chase Kid Triathlon Program. We have recruited 26+ volunteers at both branches of our YMCA to join me memory of each of Chase’s classmates and teachers who were taken from us way too early on December 14, 2012.

Each day starting June 1, a new volunteer will join the cause and run, swim, bike or exercise continuously until June 26. Each runner has a goal of $385 to raise to that we can offer a FREE kids triathlon program to 70+ children this summer. These children will train for 6-weeks and compete in a triathlon on July 31 at YMCA Camp Sloper. Those 70+ children will show the same sort of perseverance and determination that Chase had when he competed and won his first triathlon in the fall of 2012.

Beginning Wednesday, May 19th, Connecticut has issued new mask rules. Fully vaccinated members and employees in non-childcare positions are now welcome to use most of our facilities mask-free. If you prefer to continue to wear your mask regardless of this transition, we encourage you to do so.
We kindly ask that if you have not yet received your full COVID-19 vaccination that you continue to wear a mask while inside YMCA facilities and program areas. Masks are still required for everyone in our childcare facilities, including Amazing Kids Club, regardless of your vaccination.
Per CDC guidelines, you are considered fully vaccinated when at least 2 weeks have passed since receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose series, or at least 2 weeks have passed since receipt of one dose of a single-dose vaccine.
