Memorial 5K, Pump-N-Run, Para Open (Wheeled), 1 Mile Walk, and Kids Run: May 23, 2020

Thank you to everyone who came out to our 2019 Memorial race day! Our annual Memorial event is made of up five different activities: 5K run through the streets of downtown Youngstown; NEW Pump-N-Run, the ultimate equalizer between power and speed; Para Open (Wheeled) 5K or Pump-N-Run; 1 Mile Fun Walk, and 1/2 Mile Kids Run. The race is no longer a 5 mile race, but a 5K that runs through the streets of Downtown Youngstown. In addition, the Pump-N-Run bench press is the ultimate equalizer between power and speed reducing their 5K time. After the race is over, participants are welcome to join us for a cookout.

Our annual Memorial Event will support our LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program, helping adult cancer survivors reclaim their health and well-being. The 12-week program is offered at no cost to each cancer survivor.
