About This Activity

The YMCA Heroes Run 5k will be an "Easter-themed" 5k Fun Run, please feel free to dress accordingly to add to the fun of the event! Please note that this is a non-chipped timed run as proceeds will benefit YMCA of the Sandhills youth programs; Girls on the Run, Girls on Track & STRIDE, we will have a timer there for you to track your own personal time but we will not have results available after the run and there will not be awards given. These programs focus primarily on positive youth development for kids in grades 3 through 8 and creatively integrate running and training for a 5k. We teach life lessons through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. This 5k is the culminating event for our participants and is meant to be non-competitive, but rather to give them build self-confidence through the accomplishment of setting and achieving their goals, while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. We thank you for supporting these programs and would invite you to learn more about what we do at www.ymcaofthesandhills.org
