With kiddie dashes, pee wee relays, shot puts, painted faces and burgers, Catholic Charities CYO concluded a successful track and field season at CYO Family Day on Sunday, June 1, 2014 at Mount Saint Michael Academy in the Bronx.

The sun and game -filled afternoon took on extra meaning by using funds that could have gone towards medals to instead make donations to Westchester and Bronx food pantries on behalf of the Upstate CYO Track Program  in the name of Mount St. Michael Academy for their generous support.

“Let’s show our neighbors we care and teach our children that their involvement in the CYOtrack program is more important than winning medals,” said Director of CYO Operations Seth Peloso.

Catholic Charities Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) division supports and coordinates parish-based youth programs – spiritual, cultural, and athletic – that foster the growth of nearly 24,000 children each year.
