Healthy Living

Improving the nation's health and well-being

Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It's about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. At the Y, it's not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.

2020 Memorial Day/Law Day 5K

Due to the concern surrounding the coronavirus and the CDC’s recommendation of no events of 10-plus people for next couple of months, we’ve made the decision to cancel the 2020 Memorial Day/Law Day 5k.  

This decision was not taken lightly, but our priority lies with the safety of our running community - participants, observers, and volunteers alike.

‚ÄčThank you for your understanding.
