SUPPORT YC

Where Will Color Take You? raises vital funds for Youth Challenge. YC brings together young people with physical disabilities and teen volunteers who inspire each other through adapted sports, recreation and social growth activities.

Sherwin-Williams will be generously matching all donations to Youth Challenge, up to $5,000, doubling your impact!

Visit www.YouthChallengeSports.com/RaceGift to donate today. You can also sponsor a Youth Challenge participant and/or family on race day. Thank you for supporting children with disabilities and their teen volunteers!

Interested in volunteering for the race? Sign up today at www.YouthChallengeSports.com/RaceVolunteer!
