Thank you to our sponsors, volunteers, donors and EVERYONE who helped make our Frosty 5K a huge success.

Thank you for making an impact in your community!

We'll see you next year for our 8th Annual Frosty 5k on Saturday, December 13, 2014!

Join us for our 8th Annual Lincoln County Family YMCA Frosty 5K Race! This year's race will help fund our Y-Readers program where we give children performing below grade level the opportunity to continue to improve their reading and writing skills. We also provide each child with field trips and swim lessons throughout the summer months. This program builds self-confidence in the classroom and within each child.

Run for Literacy:
Proceeds from the Frosty 5K benefit the Y Reader literacy program through the Lincoln County YMCA Community Support Campaign. In 2012, the Lincoln County and Sally's YMCA served 24 Y Readers students with 92% of students maintaining or improving their literacy skills by the end of the summer. The summer of 2013, the Y served 48 students with 88% of students maintaining or improving their literacy skills.
