What began as a way to honor the life and spirit of Bob Biagiotti,a YMCA member who passed away unexpectedly in 2005, has evolved into an event celebrating children of all abilities. Since 2005, the Run for Bob has raised $75,000 which has allowed children with special needs to participate, alongside their typically developing peers, in an array of social and recreational programs and activities.
As an example, Kayla, Bob and Kris’ daughter, has been participating in a volunteer position at the YMCA outside of her school with children and adults from her community. To see her smile when you walk into the branch is a true testament to what this work is all about. With continued support from people like you,we will be assured that other kids, just like Kayla, have the opportunity to participate in our YMCA.
Race participation is open to all ages. Participants pre-registered by April 26, 2013 will receive a free T-shirt. This is a family event with children’s activities, free refreshments, raffle prizes, and more! All participants receive a finisher’s medal.
