YMCA Open Doors is hosting a virtual fun run to help people experiencing disadvantage access YMCA programs and services.
At the Y, we believe everyone should have access to programs that enrich their lives and help them become healthier, happier and more connected. All money raised will go towards those in our community who need it the most, by subsiding their access to our programs and services.
Virtual fun run details
|Date and time: Anytime during Saturday 30 to Sunday 31 October 2021|
Location: There is no set location, you can run anywhere (for example in your local park)
|Entry fee: $20.00 (100% of proceeds go to YMCA Open Doors).|
Complete 5k any time on the weekend 30 - 31 October 2021 and your run will be submitted to the event. You don’t have to be a seasoned runner to take part. You could chase your personal best, or just take a stroll around your local park (as long as you do 5km). So get off of your couch for a chance to win some exciting prizes!
