VIRTUAL RUNS & WELLNESS CHALLENGES

At the YMCA, our cause is community. We work everyday to develop the potential of our youth, support healthy living, and foster social responsibility. All three aspects of our work come together in YMCA Virtual Runs & Wellness Challenges.

When you participate in a virtual run and wellness challenge, you are making a contribution to our youth development programming efforts while striving to meet personal health and wellness goals. And we hope you have a lot of fun with our themes and make some new friends along the way!

We invite you to use YTRAAK to set and meet your fitness goals while earning points for other healthy behaviors and enjoying a little healthy competition among friends.

Thank you in advance for engaging in your Y community and supporting impactful youth programs like swim lessons, youth sports and day camp!
