Y Nurture Challenge

Rules and Prizes



The Y Nurture Challenge is a game of chance where members of the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities can complete pre-defined activities for a chance to win a prize. The Y Nurture Challenge runs from midnight on December 5, 2018 until 11:59pm on December 18, 2018. After this time, no further entries to the promotion will be permitted.


No promotional fees or purchase required.
