For 39 years the Niles-Buchanan YMCA has hosted a Thanksgiving Day Run in the community. It has become a tradition for many people who live or visit the Niles-Buchanan area at Thanksgiving. Last year, over 2,700 people from 30 states participated in the 10k Run, 5k Run/Walk, or the Kids 1 Mile Fun Run. Proceeds from the Thanksgiving Day Run support the Y's Annual Campaign which supports youth programming as well as financial support to families through membership scholarships. The Niles-Buchanan YMCA Thanksgiving Day Run is the largest, most popular run in the Michiana area.
