Who Benefits?

  • The Y is the nation's leading nonprofit organization committed to strengthening our communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. With a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, improving health and well-being, and giving back by supporting our neighbors, your participation in our road races will not just bring about meaningful change in you, but your community as well.
  • Money raised from our races go towards the Y's annual campaign, our financial assistance program. It’s our mission to say YES to everyone and promise no one will be turned away from the Y because of their inability to pay. Last year we gave away over $2 million in financial assistance to our neighbors.
  • Camp, childcare, Y programs and more are all available to those in need because of like minded participants in events such as these.

Thank you for your participation and for helping us to succeed in this mission.
