“The QUAD has served as a wonderful opportunity
for my family to do something healthy together when
they were growing up. Since the kids have grown and
moved on, the QUAD has been my own personal fitness
program. Moreover, I have seen that the QUAD has
been a great activity for many companies in our area to
develop employee wellness programs. Let’s go for
30 more years of the QUAD!”

Highmark QUAD Kids sponsored by Wegmans
The Highmark QUAD Games are a great event for the whole
family and even your young children can get in on the fun.
QUAD Kids is a noncompetitive series of shorter distances
for your child. QUAD Kids events are held the day of the
regular QUAD events, but later in the day to allow parents
to participate separately and still get to watch your QUAD
Kid. The YMCA even provides free babysitting while you are
participating. Distances for QUAD Kids include the choice of
a 25-or 50-yard swim, half-mile or one-mile bike ride, run or
ski and snowshoe.
All of our little participants will get a QUAD Kids T-shirt and
a medal for completing their event. QUAD Kids is a great
way to introduce your child to the fun of active fitness.
