The event is completely planned, promoted and put on by youths of the YMCA Minority Achievers Program. The youths meet for months on a weekly basis to make this happen and learn event planning, fundraising and marketing skills as well as learning how to work with many different groups to achieve a common goal.

Teams practice and compete for a first-place cash prize of $3,600.
