Community Cup kicks off in Youngstown

Community Cup banners

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The annual Youngstown Area Community Cup held its opening ceremonies Friday night outside the YMCA downtown.

This is the 25th year for the festivities. The Community Cup focuses on the importance of physical fitness and exercise.

Teams created banners that were judged by the community. The program’s director said the annual event would not have lasted so long without community and business support.

“I can’t say enough about the teams that are out here that come out and do these events. We would not have lasted 25 years without them. The Youngstown area is a great area. There is nothing more that needs to be said about that,” Community Cup Director Jennifer Quinlan said.

The 2014 Community Cup will be held Sept. 6, with preliminary events taking place Aug. 22-24.
