The Mother's Day 5K Run/Walk is hosted to support our LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program. This is a free, 12-week small group recovery program for adult cancer survivors that runs year round. The LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program was created to improve and assist the lives of people affected by cancer by helping survivors rebuild confidence, muscle mass and strength, increase flexibility, endurance, and functional ability and provide a welcoming community where they can connect meaningfully with other survivors.
As part of our mission to promote healthy living and inspire members of our community who need help, the Summit Area YMCA works to provide programming and support to individuals of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Your dollars directly contribute to helping us make these resources a reality and enabling us to keep our LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program free and available to cancer survivors within our community. All funds raised from the Mother’s Day 5K support this impactful program.
