This would have been the first (of hopefully several) run run/walks through the Festival of Lights, put on by the Western Community Center YMCA. I am hoping that this will be taking place next year, and we can all start a new family tradition. Race organizers encourage the community to visit the Festival of Lights this season (which kicks off Thanksgiving night) and help support this fantastic organization. 

The Festival of Lights are still looking for volunteers and business sponsors to help with the 2020 light season. If you are interested in either log on to the organization’s website for more information.

If you've already signed up and paid to be in the race, the YMCA is working hard to give race goers a full reimbursement as soon as possible.
