The Greater Valley YMCA, Easton / Phillipsburg Branch, will host the 22nd Annual Firecracker 4 Mile Run and Walk on July 4, in memory of Spencer H. Smith!

Dress in your red, white, and blue and join us to kick off your July 4 celebration! Your morning will be filled with fun and smiles during this great event for families, as well as competitive runners. Run or walk our beautiful four mile course, beginning and ending at Fairview Park in Palmer Township. Strollers are welcome! The kids will love our FREE Kids Fun Run around the ball field!

All proceeds from the Firecracker Race support the funding of youth program scholarships. Our promise at the Y is that no child or family is turned away from our programs due to an inability to pay. In 2019, the Greater Valley YMCA, Easton/Phillipsburg branch awarded more than $274,000 in scholarships for enrollment in the Ys programs! Thank you for supporting our community!!
