The YMCA of Metro North Road Race Series raises funds for a variety of charitable activities that benefit our community. Participants, in our four unique 5K races and half marathon, run or walk to support the YMCA of Metro North Annual Fund and raise money to provide access to YMCA child care, camp, and health and wellness programs to everyone. In 2023 the YMCA of Metro North provided more than $1.9 million in financial aid providing all children, adults and families with opportunities to develop a healthy spirit, mind and body regardless of income.
