Virtual YMCA Fun Run
Saturday 1 – Sunday 16 May 2021
Simply run or walk 1 or 5 miles and help us to transform the lives of vulnerable young people in our local community.
The Virtual YMCA Fun Run is back for 2021! Whilst we had hoped to see you all in person, we are excited to kick-start a summer of fun-filled fundraising!
Open a JustGiving fundraising page and let your friends and family know why you’re taking part. All funds raised go to our Life Change Fund to help local young people get their lives back on track following the impact of COVID-19.
Run or walk your chosen distance – any way you want to! You can choose your own route or follow our YMCA Fun Run routes from Priory Park.
Share your runs on social media using #YMCAFunRun – we’d love to see your running photos!
Fancy dress is highly encouraged and there will be prizes for the best costumes!
You’ll receive your very own YMCA medal for your Virtual YMCA Fun Run achievement and all of your amazing fundraising efforts. There’ll even be a prize for our top fundraiser!
Here is the best part – registration is free! We want to give everyone the chance to get involved, challenge themselves, and most importantly have some fun.
Fundraise to transform young lives in East Surrey!
The Pandemic has been really tough for all young people but even more so for those who are vulnerable or disadvantaged. All money raised from our 2021 challenge events will go towards our new Life Change Fund. This fund will support a range of YMCA services, projects and programmes to address these needs and help young people build the resilience, belief and confidence to overcome the challenges they face.
Here are just a few of our projects that the Life Change Fund will support:
- New £1.5m housing scheme in Horley for 12 young people aged 18+
- New youth work offer reaching over 1,000 young people aged 11–19
- New emotional wellbeing and mental health service supporting over 2,300 young people
- YMCA Young Volunteers Project
Any amount you can raise will help to transform young lives in the local area, so please consider fundraising for us.
