Registrations are open for the Pittsfield Family YMCA’s Tie Dye Dash: 5K Color Run fundraiser. The event will be held rain or shine on Saturday, May 30, starting at 9 a.m. Register by April 30 for the best rate of $20.

The race is a 5K color run that begins and ends in Burbank Park, where victory is in doing your personal best. This race is not about being the fastest or being in the best shape; it is about encouraging healthy lifestyles. You can walk, jog, run or hop on one foot as long as you get out there and give it your all. Dressed in a provided YMCA white T-shirt and sunglasses, you will pass through 5 splash zones where colored cornstarch powder will be tossed at you. By the end of the 3.1 miles (5K), you will be colored in a tie dyed array of creativity. All proceeds support the Pittsfield Family YMCA’s Bright Futures: Summer Literacy Program.

3-7 p.m.: Packet pickup at the Pittsfield Family YMCA. Packet includes: Map of the race and rules, one color packet, sunglasses and white YMCA T-Shirt.

Day of event
8-8:45 a.m.: Day of Race registrations with packet pickup at the Controy Pavilion in Burbank Park. Cash only on the day of race. Optional: Please donate a new or gently-used youth book for our literacy initiatives!
9 a.m.: Race begins. Arrive 45 minutes early so you have time to park and stretch.

Cost: If participant registers by April 30, the cost is $20. If participant registers from May 1-29, the cost is $25. If participant registers the day of the race, the cost is $35 and is cash only.

Location: Northern Berkshire YMCA
Address: 22 Brickyard Court, North Adams
Information:

The Northern Berkshire YMCA is now accepting registrations for its Tee Ball League for all boys and girls from age 3-6 years old. The deadline to register is April 25. Held at Brayton Elementary School Field, the league’s dates are from May 2-June 13.

The Y's Tee Ball is a 7-week program designed to be instructional in nature and non-competitive in practice in that the score is not kept. Children will learn fundamental baseball skills, the rules of the game and sportsmanship values by knowledgeable volunteer coaches. This is not a travel league.

All games are played on Saturday mornings. Practices will be held for the first 30 minutes. The latter 30 minutes will be a game.

The league cost is $40 for members and $65 for non-members. An annual youth membership is $36. Children will be given a T-shirt with their team name and number on it, as well as an end-of-the-year award. The Y provides bats, balls and helmets. However, it's the parents and players responsibility to provide a glove.

For more information, call Jeremy Levesque at 413-663-6529 x106 or jlevesque@ymcanb.org.
