The 5th Annual Sock Soaker is this Saturday, May 11th!   The three-to-four mile obstacle race event, Sock Soaker, kicks off at Our Sunday Visitor parking lot at 8:40am. Race registrations will be accepted through race-day and can be completed here!

The entire community is invited to watch the fun and join at the finish line near Lake Clare Fitness Park pavilion for the kick-off of the 2019 Annual Campaign, “Your Gift Changes Lives”.    This family-friendly after-party will celebrate the completion of the race and the beginning of the Annual Campaign.  JB’s Food Truck and music begin at 10:30am.  Games and family-fun activities will also be offered including a dunk tank, giant blow-up slide, nine-square and more!  Sock Soaker awards will be handed out starting at 11:00am.  The after-party is open to the entire community!

All funds raised from the Sock Soaker benefit the YMCA’s annual campaign for financial assistance.  Last year the Parkview Huntington Family YMCA awarded over $60,000 in scholarship to the Huntington community.  The annual campaign enables the YMCA to not turn anyone away from membership or programs based on their ability to pay the full rates.  Donations for the 2019 Annual Campaign can be completed HERE.  Help us “change lives” with your participation.   Every gift impacts our community!

Questions about the 2019 Annual Campaign can be directed to Joy Koch, Director of Development and Marketing and questions about the Sock Soaker can be forwarded to Vanessa Macias-Hannie, Sock Soaker Coordinator.  Both may be contacted at the YMCA at 260-359-9622 or at their emails:  joy.koch@huntingtony.org and vanessa.hannie@huntingtony.org.  Please plan to join us!
