SML YMCA May Have to Change Weekend Fundraiser Due to Government Shutdown

Posted: Updated:

If the government shutdown continues past Saturday, Oct. 19, the Smith Mountain Lake YMCA will hold its 5k at Lakewatch Plantation.

We'll follow up Friday to let you know for sure.

SML YMCA has been working hard to meet a fundraising deadline that was set to expire this month. The match deadline has been extended until January of 2014.

So far the facility has raised $120,000 of its $300,000 goal. It is working to get rid of some of its debt so it doesn't have to limit programs and hours.

The after-party will still be at Sunken City Brewing Company.
