Food Folks & Spokes is canceled, YMCA announces other event changes

  • Updated

Tour of America’s Dairyland (ToAD) has canceled the June bike racing series for this year over continuing coronavirus concerns. The tour is expected to return in 2021.

Food, Folks & Spokes, presented by the Kenosha YMCA, is the kickoff race for the series and will not be held downtown.

Cindy Altergott, YMCA director, said, “The Kenosha YMCA is disappointed that this great community event will not take place but look forward to enhancing and adding special events to help promote our community services. All of Kenosha YMCA events are held to support our community programs that come at no charge to our participants in need.”

The YMCA also announced that the date for the 43rd year of the Firecracker Run/Walk has been moved to coincide with the City of Kenosha Fireworks display on Sept 6. Both events traditionally occur on the same day. Final approval is anticipated by mid-July.

The YMCA also said the summer golf outing will be postponed until Sept. 28, the spring Miracle League is canceled and the fall will be determined later, and the Tri My Best Triathlon wil be held Aug. 2 and changed to a duathlon.

“The Kenosha YMCA would like to thank our sponsors and will be working with them to utilize alternative avenues to promote their philanthropic support of the Kenosha YMCA and our mission”, said Chris Finkel, development director, “Right now, the most important thing all of us can do is focus our attention on helping people with the new challenges we all face. Please know that we remain committed to finding other ways to find support so that the YMCA remains available to all in the community regardless of their ability to pay.”
