The Lynn YMCA is gearing up for its Third Annual Spring Fling 5K that will be held on Saturday, May 19 at 10 a.m. at the Lynn Woods Reservation on Great Woods Wood.

Kathy Walsh, vice president of development, said the race will benefit the YMCA’s Growing Stronger Together Annual Campaign.

“We hope to raise about $2,500 for the annual fund,” said Walsh. “We want to use the money for summer camp scholarships.”

Lynn ‘Y’ fitness director Sharon Dobbyn said T-shirts will be presented to the first 200 registrants. Awards will be presented to the top male and female winners. Medals will also be presented in the various age divisions.

The cost of entries is $15.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m. on the day of the race.

“We hope people will come out and support the YMCA,” said Walsh. “It’s a great way to get some exercise and support a great organization.”
