WESTFIELD AREA Y FLYERS HOST 2ND ANNUAL FLYERS YOUTH TRACK AND FIELD MEET

WESTFIELD AREA Y FLYERS HOST 2ND ANNUAL FLYERS YOUTH TRACK AND FIELD MEET

The Westfield Area Y is pleased to announce the 2nd annual Flyers Youth Track and Field Meet. The meet will be held on Sunday, June 22nd at Kehler Stadium at noon.  Open to the community, approximately 500 youth ages 7-16 will compete in running, jumping and throwing events.  This is a USATF sanctioned meet.  Ribbons will be awarded for 1st through 6th place. 

This year, a one-mile adult run has been added, for a $15 suggested tax-deductible contribution.  Proceeds will benefit the Westfield Area Y Strong Kids Campaign, which provides direct financial assistance to ensure that no one who lives or works in Westfield, Cranford, Garwood or Mountainside and is suffering a bona fide financial hardship is turned away from the Y for inability to pay. 

To register for either the youth meet or adult run, please visit the Westfield Area Y Main Facility, 220 Clark Street or register online at www.coacho.com.  Questions?  Please contact Paul Garwood, Assistant Director of Physical Programs at 908-233-2700 x258; pgarwood@westfieldynj.org. 

The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Visit www.westfieldynj.org to learn more about Westfield Area Y programs.  Financial assistance is available for those who qualify.
