Annual Highland Y Run

Every year the Highland Y Run welcomes runners and race fans of all ages and abilities. This virtual race will take place in January 2022. Participants can pick a 5k or 10k race route of their choice.


Meet Jojo, she is 12 years old and loves to run! As a member of the Highland Y, Jojo is able to participate in programs that keep her active and engaged with the help of our Financial Assistance program.

“I come to the Y to help me to focus, to get out my excess energy, and to make friends,” Jojo shared. “I like that there are so many activities, there is no limits to what I can do.”

With your help, our Financial Assistance program is able to offer scholarships to Highland youth, like Jojo, families, and individuals; removing financial barriers and making our programs accessible to all in the community. With your support and participation in the Virtual Highland Y Run, you work alongside the Y to help build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities.
