On Sunday, April 28, the Rye YMCA will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Rye Derby. To showcase the history of this special event, a commemorative quilt consisting of a collection of Rye Derby t-shirts was created. Volunteers gathered together with instructor Kim Mulcahy to work on the quilt in 5 sessions, first sewing together the t-shirts, then embellishing them with sequins, buttons, yarn and stitching. “The process of creating the quilt also resulted in a small community,” said Penny Cozza, Rye Y Fund Development Associate. “We started off as strangers and ended up as friends.”
The 5K and 5M races start at 10:15 and the 1 mile family fun run/walk starts at 12:15 pm. Runners may register in advance at the Rye Y Member Services desk until noon on Friday and online until 2pm at Saturday. Race day registration starts at 8 am, checks and cash only. Starting at 10:30 am, runners and families are invited to gather at the Rye Y for free activities including active games, jumping castle, live music and a BBQ.
