Health, holidays and helping kids…What better way to start your holiday season! Join us on Saturday, Dec. 9 at Keeneland for the YMCA of Central Kentucky’s twelfth annual Reindeer Ramble, presented by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and Anthem Medicaid to help fund scholarships for kids to attend summer camp at the Y. This family-friendly event features a 5K and new 10K race for individuals or teams. Register online between Nov. 24-27 and save $5 on an individual registration with code SAVE5 or save $10 for a Santapede team with code SAVE10.

5K Santapede teams consists of three to 10 participants who must be linked together with a garland or ribbon throughout the 5K race. Participants are encouraged to wear holiday-related costumes. Top finishers in each category, as well as those Santapede teams that celebrate the holiday spirit most brightly will be recognized post race.

“We want to give every child the opportunity to learn new skills, develop character and make friends,” said YMCA of Central Kentucky Director of Community Health Corey Donohoo. “The Y is a place for all, regardless of financial ability. Last year, the YMCA of Central Kentucky provided over $1 million in scholarship support to send youth to our summer camps. 100% of the race proceeds will benefit kids to ensure they have a summer they will remember for a lifetime.” In 2017, the Y served over 2,000 kids in summer camps.

The 5K and 10K rates are $15 for a child/teen (Ages 8-17), $25 for an adult (Ages 18 and up), $100 for a 5K Santapede team (3-5 people) or $175 for a 5K Santapede team (6-10 people) through Nov. 28. After Nov. 29 rate increases will apply.
