We are excited to announce this year’s River Race and we’re looking forward to seeing all our racing friends again! Join us on Sunday, July 24th for the annual Delaware Youth Center River Race. Register for the 5K run or walk; or for a greater challenge, try the 10K distance! T-Shirts for the first 400 participants, so register early! Can’t attend this year but still want to join in the fun? Register for the Gary A. Winglovitz Virtual Run! No matter what race you choose, all proceeds benefit the Delaware Youth Center.
Here’s what’s going on:
All proceeds benefit the Delaware Youth Center.
The Delaware Youth Center River Run is one of the largest and most vital fundraisers for our facility. This funding allows us to operate the facility and keep the Youth Center open for another generation of Callicoon-area kids.
Please review the website for all your race information. If you need more information, email Ann Santoro, the race director, at 5K@delawareyouthcenter.org or call 845-887-4887.
We would like to thank all our sponsors and participants! We are humbled and grateful for all the support.
And a very special thank you to the entire Winglovitz team and family for their huge outpouring of support in memory of Gary Winglovitz. We greatly appreciate all you have done to honor Gary’s memory and to support the DYC!
Gary A. Winglovitz
The Gary A. Winglovitz Virtual Race began in 2019, named for one of our own: Gary Winglovitz, a kid who grew up in Cochecton and spent his childhood at the Delaware Youth Center. Gary died in 2014 at 41, and his family and friends have come out in force ever since to run the River Race in his memory.
Here’s how the virtual race works:
In the past we’ve had participants as far away as Lima, Peru and Sydney, Australia in our virtual race. This year, we hope to see you join us from wherever you are!
