Our YMCA 5K Series in Now Virtual!

We may be apart, but we can join in together to help the community. Proceeds from the race series will benefit the YMCA of Long island COVID-19 Response Fund.* Your support will help the Y provide essential programs and services to vulnerable individuals and families through our communities during these unprecedented times.

*In previous years, each YMCA 5K Run/Walk supported a designated program or service to benefit the local communities needs. In 2021, the Y and all of our virtual 5K races are coming together to benefit the impact coronavirus has made across the region. We recognize the causes, programs, and services from past years and strive to resume fundraising efforts for these causes below in 2022.
