Zanesville runners are showing their dedication despite the cold temperatures.
During the 7th annual Zaney Reindeer Run, participants were able to help the Muskingum Family YMCA spread their message. The event helps with the YMCA’s financial assistance program which provides scholarships to the youth of the community.
"It creates awareness. Number One, it talks about what The Y is all about and no one is turned away due to inability to pay. It also fits in with our themes of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility," said YMCA executive director Craig Miracle.
Miracle says today’s success was truly important to the community of Zanesville.
"Last year we had approximately 55 so it’s grown each year and we are just really excited because its peoples’ opportunity to give back and help those otherwise who wouldn’t be able to participate," stated Miracle.
Today’s event raised over 1300 dollars.
