The Covington Y Cheerios Challenge has been an important event for our Y for 19 years. It is an opportunity for our community to come together FOR A BETTER US. This event also helps make important programs like youth sports, camp, and swim lessons, possible for EVERYONE in our community.
Due to the pandemic, we weren't able to have our treasured event in person this year. We hope you will join us virtually, from wherever you are, December 12-17, to run or walk for the Y and spread some holiday CHEER!
