Memorial Day — Monday, May 29, 2023

“It’s a beautiful day,” Steve Snider would often announce. And he meant it…even on a cold, dark, day. For Snider, every day was a gift, especially if it was a race day. The long-time, award-winning and beloved teacher and track and cross country coach passed away last February after a long battle with heart complications. He lived every day to the fullest and encouraged his children, grandchildren, students, and athletes to do the same. Snider was an integral part of the Greensburg running and recreation community and his passing devastated so many that knew and loved him. To honor him and his zest for life, for running, his family and friends, in partnership with the Greensburg YMCA, will host the inaugural “It’s a Beautiful Day 5K Run” on Monday, May 29, 2023.

Come join us for this event…it is not only a race…but a celebration of our father’s life and legacy!

—Matthew and Nathan Snider
