WAUSAU (WAOW) -- The Woodson YMCA in Wausau needs your help in order to win a $5,000 grant for its DYG Program.

DYG stands for DARE YMCA Graduate and teaches kids about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

It gives area 5th through 8th graders continued Dare Education after they complete the 5th grade dare program.

If the Y wins this Pepsi-Refresh grant money it will make their DYG program free for all kids who attend.

Russ Bahr, YMCA Youth Sports Director says, "We need them to go on the website and vote. They can vote everyday throughout the month of March. However, many email addresses they have they can use to vote."

The Woodson YMCA is currently in 49th place. They need to finish in the top 10 to win the money.
