YPT is thrilled to announce that we will be participating in Acumen Solutions’ 6th Annual 
Race for a Cause™ 8K and 1-mile Fun Run!


We’re back! For a third year in row, YPT has been selected as one of ten charities that will benefit from Acumen Solutions Race for a Cause™, and we need YOU to run with us!  Join us Sunday, October 19, 2014 in Arlington, VA to support a great cause and pound the pavement for YPT!


Registration is officially open! Click here to register – and don’t forget to designate YPT as your non-profit. You can find more information about the race here.


Last year, you most definitely outran the sloth. With Tim the Sloth cheering us on, YPT hit the race course on a rainy October morning to prove that theater folks can keep up with the jocks any day! We walked, jogged, ran and crawled across the finish line … and, thanks to your support, we received an incredible $25,000.

Did you run last year? Join us again! Beat your 8K time, or enjoy a fun 1 mile run/walk with friends and family (and then get brunch!)

Weren’t able to join Team Sloth last year? Join the race and join the fun! It’s a new year, a new challenge and we’ve got a new team captain who would love to see YOU this year! Challenge yourself to run for YPT and you’ll be amazed at what you can do.

Who's this year's team captain? Guess you'll just have to stay tuned and find out...


Your participation will help YPT win the funds we need to expand into new classrooms and sprint toward our goal of serving 3,000 students in the next three years!

And if you need extra incentive to get your competitive juices flowing, $2,000 dollars in combined prizes will be awarded to top race winners.


Thank you, as always, for your amazing support! See you on the race course!
