Relay 4 Community Health

United Way | YMCA Relay 4 Community Health

Join us on Sunday, June 30 from 5-7pm at Albemarle High School for the Relay 4 Community Health! This partnership between the United Way and the Piedmont Family YMCA promotes community health and healthy lifestyles, raises funds for the prevention of chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and more.

Runners and walkers of all abilities, age 8+, will come together to form teams from family, businesses, clubs, neighborhoods, friends or other groups. Each runner completes a 1/2 miles leg then passes the baton to a teammate. Each walker completes 1/4 mile leg and passes the baton. You can do it - but not alone!

Help relay our message that when we work together, we can make our whole community healthier. The Relay will encourage and support families and friends to engage in healthy lifestyles together. There will be a post-Relay celebration with food trucks, music, prizes, and fun kid activities. All participants who complete a leg of the Relay will receive a FREE one-week membership to the YMCA!
