Join us for the 3rd Annual - Run for the Youth 5K to benefit the Sheriff's Youth Activity League (Lee County, FL).  We'll be running through the beautiful Lakes Park, conveniently located in the center of Lee County.

The Mission of SYAL is to unite the experience of Community Leaders with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office to provide safe and enriching programs for the youth in Lee County. SYAL’s vision is to connect the Lee County Sheriff’s Office in a series of supplemental programs to mentor and support local youth. The services provided by SYAL are more than just fun and games. These programs are organized, structured, and adult-supervised or coached. This provides excellent opportunities for adolescents to develop and grow to become civic-minded, productive adults and community leaders.
