Bainbridge Youth Services to host Baker Hill Challenge

Bainbridge Youth Services to host Baker Hill Challenge

The Island nonprofit Bainbridge Youth Services is looking for potential kings and queens of Baker Hill.

The group is seeking fit runners to kick off this year’s Taste of Lynwood event on Saturday, Sept. 16 by participating in the Baker Hill Challenge: a 1-mile footrace straight up Baker Hill near Lynwood Center.

Winners will earn the distinction of being crowned the king and queen of the hill.

All proceeds from the event will go to benefit Bainbridge Youth Services, which works to offer free, confidential counseling, tutoring and job services for youth ages 12 through 21.

All ages are welcome for the challenge, and those who do not wish to race can walk to the top of the hill. Dogs and strollers are welcome, too, and the event will be followed by a kids tug-o-war at an adjacent property.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 16 (the day of the event) at the foot of Baker Hill. A $20 donation will nab participants a BYS bandana, a water bottle and T-shirts, while they last.
