We look forward to coming together as a community—friends and partners alike, who will have the opportunity to enjoy this free, family-friendly event including games and activities, various vendor and resource booths, and much more!

In lead up to YES Day, teams are encouraged to raise funds through peer-to-peer engagement to support SARRC’s goal of being able to provide support and access to families across our state. Importantly, all dollars raised will be kept in Arizona for Arizona.
