What is yrc?


YMCA Racing Collaborative

At the Greater Waterbury YMCA, we realized that there are SO MANY great races in our community that it can be hard to keep track all of them and figure out which ones you should do. YRC's mission is to support races in our community - especially ones with great causes. Some of the races are ones we're organizing ourselves, some are brand new, and some have been brought to you for years by great community organizations we're now collaborating and partnering with - but ALL of them are for a good cause.  Every month, we're going to send out a newsletter which is going to include WHEN and WHERE you need to be to be a part of some of the best community races, tips about WHAT you need to do to get there, and an inspirational story from one of the causes we're highlighting - WHY doing that race will make a difference in our community, and in the world.
