Friday, October 23 • 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Families will enjoy this safe and "not-so-spooky" event that will feature Trunk 'n Treat, Candy Maze, DJ for the Costume Dance Party, games and fun for everyone!  This event is open to everyone in our community - a Y membership is not needed to participate.

Parents and guardians, you will be a hero for your child and also for others...because this year we are gathering winter outerwear items to help those in our area that need warmer clothing before winter arrives.  Just this year, 2,677 youth in our community have asked for help with a winter coat.  1,684 adults have made the same request.  We have partnered with United Way of Olmsted County and the Salvation Army and are asking families to bring an item for this Winter Outerwear Clothing Drive or a suggested $10 donation for this event.  The collection of items is officially closed on October 5th but the Rochester Area Family YMCA will be collecting coats until October 23rd.


The Not-So-Scary SPOOKTACULAR Family Fun Run & Walk

Saturday, October 31st  * Run & Walk start at 1:30pm

This family friendly event is open to everyone...and every step made that day and dollar raised will be going to help raise funds and awareness for the LiveSTRONG program at the Rochester Area Family YMCA.  Walk or run as a family, register as an individual or just cheer on others while they complete their 1 mile or 5k!  Show up a little early and enjoy the Zumba warm-up starting at 12:15pm and the kid friendly activities starting at Noon.  Registration is open online or by stopping at the Welcome Center.  T-shirts will be provided to those who register prior to October 12th.  Sizes not guaranteed after that date.
