THE CHALLENGE

The Y FIT GAMES is an inclusive wellness challenge designed to encourage individuals to get active through fun and competitive physical activities. Individuals will strengthen their mind, body and spirit, through a variety of exercises and team workouts. Y FIT GAMES is set up to include all levels of fitness, with competitive and recreational events.

THE CAUSE

When you join Y FIT GAMES, your registration fee from the event will go directly to support Safety Around Water. The support will provide free water safety lessons for hundreds of children on the First Coast. Knowing how to swim is a life-saving skill children will carry with them throughout their entire lives, and it could mean the difference between life and death for themselves, or for someone they will be able to help in the future.
