Join us Sunday, May 3rd for our first ever CYF You Matter 5k.  Walkers are welcome! This event serves to bring awareness about the mental health struggles we all face and how we must strive to help each other through dark times. This year, the Community Youth Foundation has chosen to share proceeds raised with I AM a Warrior, a local group actively placing signage around Muskingum County as a lifeline for those experiencing thoughts of suicide.  We give everyone the opportunity to come out and let yourself and others know that despite any obstacles you face, you have worth and you matter!

New Date: MAY 2, 2021

After careful consideration of the current events surrounding the growing impact of COVID-19 and following directives from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and the Ohio Department of Public Health we have made the difficult decision to cancel the CYF You Matter 5K. Thus, the race will NOT be held Sunday, May 3rd, 2020. Our primary concern is the safety of our participants, race volunteers, and community!
Since experts do not yet have estimates for how long this public health issue will last (thus how long we will be advised to avoid large gatherings), we cannot confidently reschedule a date for the year 2020.
We are pleased to announce that we already have a date reserved with Ohio University Zanesville and Zane State College for next year. Please pencil in Sunday, May 2, 2021 for the CYF You Matter 5K! 
We’ve identified two options for participants to continue their You Matter experience:
1. DEFERMENT : Join  us on our new day in 2021. We will automatically transfer your entry over to the new date. We will post updated information as it becomes available. Registration will remain open leading up to the new date.
2. DONATION: You can convert your registration to a donation. It will be used to support I AM a Warrior Against Suicide in their cause to provide lifelines to those struggling in Muskingum County. This fund is housed at The Muskingum County Community Foundation at 534 Putnam Avenue, Zanesville.
We ask that you select the option that fits you best by May 15, 2020 so we can begin planning for our 2021 date accordingly.
We have a no refund policy. However, we realize this is an unprecedented time and the above options may not work for everyone. Before requesting a refund, please remember our organization donates our time and services for this event so that as many funds as possible go to the organizations it supports. Our funds are vital to the on-going health of our organization and our partner organizations. If you feel you have extenuating circumstances, please contact the email below.
We appreciate your patience through this process, and we will continue to keep our participants informed as we move forward. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me personally at the following email: crahrig@mccf.org I hope you have a great week and stay safe.
