Rise ‘n Shine Summer Races



Rise ‘n Shine 2020

Hope you’ve gotten your beauty sleep because it’s time to Rise ‘n Shine!

Rise ‘n Shine 2020 is taking place on Saturday, August 8th, 2020. As always, the day of races will feature a 5K for youth, families, and adults; the Children’s 1K; and the Kid’s Triathlon. All of the races take place right outside of our Y in beautiful uptown Bay City. After all of the races conclude (around 9am) the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA will be hosting a Family Fun Fest in the parking lot for all racers, members, non-members, community friends, family, and supporters to enjoy some August sunshine, play some games, and have a good time.

All three races will raise funds for our Financial Assistance Program. As a non-profit, the YMCA’s Cause is to strengthen the foundations of our community through Youth, Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. We refuse to turn anyone away from becoming a member or participating in our programming due to financial reasons. The Financial Assistance Program ensures that ALL are truly welcome to the YMCA. Your support by running in the races or donating to our program endorses your belief in creating a better, happier community by providing youth programming, health and wellness, and an opportunity to give back.


Information on registration for all three events is coming soon!
