July 4th, 2018 Butte to Butte

We were invited by our friends over at Eclectic Edge Racing to provide up to 10 volunteers for this year's Butte to Butte 10k walk/run on July 4th. This is an exciting way for our staff and members to work together to ensure the safe passage of thousands of Eugene residents that partake in the races each year. Our group of volunteers will be some of the first faces that the racers will see as we will be placed at the beginning of the course near Spencer Butte middle school. Shifts start at 7am and will conclude around 9am. All volunteers will receive a free race day tee-shirt and an invitation to the volunteer after party on July 5th.  Sign-up to volunteer at the event will close on June 1st, so don't wait, sign up today!! For more information about the event or instructions for sign-up, please email rgroff@eugeneymca.org.

July 29th, 2018 EUG Parade and Sunday Streets

Join us in the fun and festivities as we represent the oldest non-profit in Lane County in the EUG Parade!! This year the theme is "Spinnin' Our Wheels". Costumes are encouraged! We will be marching in the parade with music and bubbles surrounding us is this classic Eugene celebration. Please RSVP with Rachel to make sure we save some room for you. The meeting time for the parade portion of the day is 9:30am. The parade runs until noon, when Sunday Streets begins.

As a non-profit organization, we have the opportunity to receive a monetary donation from the City of Eugene for our volunteer services at the Sunday Streets event. For every volunteer we provide, they will donate $10 up to 30 volunteers to our organization! We will be the Intersection Superhero team (yes, costumes are encouraged but NOT required!). Volunteers are entered into a raffle for some awesome prizes, receive a free shirt, and are invited to a thank you party later in the summer. By volunteering with us, you will be supporting the YMCA to help provide scholarship funds AND helping this awesome annual city event at the same time. What could be better than that?! If you have questions or would like to join our Ycredible superhero team, please email rgroff@eugeneymca.org.
