Bainbridge Youth Services 40th Annual July 4th Fun Run

July 4th, 2019 – Run for Fun, Support Teens

Our Youth Are Worth the Extra Mile!

Kick off the Grand Old Fourth with this family friendly annual tradition!  We have events for everyone – a challenging 5K, a gentle 1 Mile and a Kids Dash for the younger set, seven and under. Join your community in the generosity and teamwork that for 40 years has helped Bainbridge Youth Services (BYS) serve teens. Help us reach this year’s goal of 1,200 participants. Proceeds help fund BYS counseling, tutoring and summer internship programs.

Every $100 in race fees provides 1.6 hours of free and confidential counseling for teens. Since 1962, BYS has been a cornerstone in the community, providing counseling and creating opportunities for young people ages 12-21 to develop leadership and life skills. Our sponsors and runners make it possible for BYS to create strong and lasting programs that so many youth and their families depend upon. The Fun Run raises enough money each year to underwrite counseling and career services for youth in our community.
