Join us in October for a virtual 5K and fun walk!
Where? Your choice! In times like this, we have to get creative! Go virtual with us.
Entry Fees include a short sleeve commemorative race t-shirt. All proceeds benefit LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a research-based exercise program for cancer survivors in our community. You can read more about LIVESTRONG at the YMCA here. Walkers and runners of all ages and abilities are invited to walk or run in honor or memory of someone they know who has been impacted by cancer.
Upon registering, you will receive a bib number. Use this to record your 5K time and share it on our leaderboard on RunSignUp.com!

T-shirts will be given out before October 1st with YMCA pick up. More t-shirt pickup dates will be available if participants register after October 1.
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a small-group program developed and established in partnership with the LIVESTRONG Foundation, assists those who are living with, through, or beyond cancer to strengthen their spirit, mind and body. Recent research from the Yale Cancer Center and Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Institute confirmed that LIVESTRONG at the YMCA participants experience improved fitness and quality of life as well as significant decreases in cancer-related fatigue. If you'd like to contribute to the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program at our Athens-McMinn Family YMCA, every donation makes a difference in our work! Donate here.
