The Rye YMCA is very fortunate to be one of the charities that is supported by a portion of the proceeds of the Westchester Triathlon. Each year the Y recruits volunteers to help with this awesome race.  This year the race is on Sunday, September 27. Volunteers are also needed on Saturday, September 26th and during the week leading up to race day to help with pre-race logistics.
Volunteers are critically important in making this local race happen, so please consider giving some of you time!   To volunteer, please click here to sign up.
