Wallingford Family YMCA, 81 S. Elm St., Wallingford, CT

Almost 50 years ago, Johanna Manfreda Fishbein started a tradition in Wallingford that would grow and change significantly over the years, bringing organizations throughout the town together to collaborate in an effort to support residents in need.

The Wallingford Family YMCA is proud to continue this tradition as host of the annual Fishbein/YMCA Community Road Race on September 19th this year. 

The Wallingford Family YMCA is a charitable organization, with a mission to strengthen the foundation of the community through programs, services and relationships that build a healthy spirit, mind and body. We invite you to join us in supporting people in need in our community through sponsorship for our most important community event, the Fishbein/YMCA Community Road Race on Sunday, September 19, 2021. All proceeds go towards our Community Support Campaign, which funds LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, our cancer survivor program, as well as providing much needed financial assistance for all our programs and services. As a non-profit organization, the Y relies on contributions from members and other friends to promote the healthy development of all regardless of their financial means. 100% of each contributed dollar goes to subsidize the cost of programs for children, families and seniors and to give financial assistance to those who need it.

Similarly to last year, we will be sending runners in waves to focus on participant safety. Before the start of the race, runners will be required to line up in their wave group. A few moments before the first wave starts, they will be asked to step forward to the start line, and each wave group behind will move forward one wave line. On command, the first wave will start, every group will step forward one line. On every 30 second interval, the wave at the start will move off and each group behind will step forward one line. This will repeat until everyone has left the start. We strongly encourage all participants, volunteers, race staff and spectators to get vaccinated before the event! Please do you part to keep our community safe and healthy.

Hope to see you there!
