Lancaster YWCA Race Against Racism 2020

This is the 22nd Running of the YWCA Lancaster's Race Against Racism! It will be held on Saturday, April 25, 2020. We need your help to make it happen! We hope you'll consider signing up for one (or more!) of the volunteer positions that we need to have filled in the days leading up to the Race, as well as Race day itself. The Race is a fundraiser to support the YWCA Lancaster racial justice education and advocacy programs. We appreciate our volunteers so much and couldn't make this race happen without you! All volunteers should report directly to the YWCA for all positions for further instructions and direction.

April will be here before we know it! Thank you in advance for supporting YWCA Lancaster and the Race Against Racism!

Kindest Regards,
RAR Volunteer Coordinator
