Al Salvato’s KIDS FUN RUN
Children ages 12 and under are welcome to run the short (under 1 mile) course at 7:40 AM. No registration required but we do ask that you consider donating a pair of children's running shoes as the registration fee. The YMCA will donate the shoes to the Brighton Center in memory of our friend Al Salvato. Al had a love for running and using the sport to mentor our youth and teens. The shoe donation will help the community and carry on Al’s vision for youth development.

Medals will be presented to the top two runners in each division. Trophies and gift cards presented to the top 2 Overall Male and Female Runners. Gift cards awarded to the runners with the most Festive Patriotic Attire, so get out your red, white and blue!Results will be posted at
