Join CYC’s Race Team!

The children of CYC are running their own race daily—living in communities with high rates of violence and poverty and low performing schools. For them, CYC is a beacon of hope and strength—helping children build the academic, social, and emotional skills needed to be successful from early childhood to college and a career.

CYC Race Team Members receive:

  • A guaranteed entry into the race of your choice
  • Training and nutrition tips.
  • Coordinated Fun Runs and events to connect with other CYC Race Team Members (optional)
  • Stories about CYC-Rebecca K. Crown Youth Center kids.
  • Race day running gear!
