Dow Bay Area Family YMCA - Bay City, MI
For event information and registration, please visit www.ymcabaycity.org/pirates-festival
All proceeds from the Pirates Festival and each FirstGiving campaign will support the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA's Strong Community Movement, which is one of the biggest ways the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA gives back to our community in the Great Lakes Bay Region. The Dow Bay Area Family YMCA's Strong Community Movement has given over $700,000 back to our community since 2011, and in the last year it made it possible for over 1,400 people in our community to become Y members, enroll in camps, join youth sports leagues, and have a safe place to learn and build confidence through child care and after-school programs. Additionally, 897 kids in our community have received scholarships for memberships here at the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA. The Pirates Festival is the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA's biggest fundraiser of the year for the Strong Community Movement, and it will allow us to continue to make a positive and lasting impact in our community.
All participants who raise over $100 through FirstGiving will have their race registration fee waived. However, ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST FILL OUT THE RACE REGISTRATION FORM. The race registration form includes shirt orders, the race liability waiver and is the way that the race management company can track all runners. Race registration forms are available for download or they can be picked up at the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA.

$500: Loaded YMCA duffle bag (stuffed with great Dow Bay Area Family YMCA swag)
