Y Be Fit Palm Desert Challenge

September 14, 2020

During this unprecedented time, the Family YMCA of the Desert, in partnership with the City of Palm Desert has created the VIRTUAL “Y Be Fit Palm Desert Challenge”. Starting on October 4th, participants will be challenged to cover 20 miles in 20 days. Folks can log in these miles in however many runs, walks, cycles, or swims they like; wherever they like and whenever they like.


This year’s virtual event will help the Family YMCA of the Desert continue programming to support the children and families of the Coachella Valley. Participants can register for this year’s event on the online platform RUNSIGNUP via the link: https://runsignup.com/ybefit.


Events like Y Be Fit helps support programming at the YMCA.
