Almost 50 years ago, Johanna Manfreda Fishbein started a tradition in Wallingford that would grow and change significantly over the years, bringing organizations throughout the town together to collaborate in an effort to support residents in need.
The Wallingford Family YMCA is proud to continue this tradition as host of the annual Fishbein/YMCA Community Road Race on October 4th this year. For the past three years, we’ve been thrilled with our partnership with Celebrate Wallingford, a town wide event that brings the community together. We are saddened by the cancellation of this event, and look forward to joining with them again in future years. This year, to prioritize the health and safety of our participants, our event will have both a live and a virtual component, bringing people together safely during the midst of our most challenging year. In following the Governor's guidelines for outdoor events during the COVID crisis, the following protocol will be put in place this year to ensure that participants will be as safe as possible:
The Wallingford Family YMCA is a charitable organization, with a mission to strengthen the foundation of the community through programs, services and relationships that build a healthy spirit, mind and body. We invite you to join us in supporting people in need in our community through sponsorship for our most important community event, the Fishbein/YMCA Community Road Race on Sunday, October 4, 2020. All proceeds go towards our Community Support Campaign, which funds LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, our cancer survivor program, as well as providing much needed financial assistance for all our programs and services. As a non-profit organization, the Y relies on contributions from members and other friends to promote the healthy development of all regardless of their financial means. 100% of each contributed dollar goes to subsidize the cost of programs for children, families and seniors and to give financial assistance to those who need it.
**Registration is available through 10/1/20, with all registrations being done online. The live event begins at 9 am on 10/4/20!
