Why Participate?

The 10th Annual Riverdale Run is a challenging event. Whether you run for 5 or 10 Kilometers, or you go for the 1/2 marathon, you will enjoy the city scenery, the cheering people, and the satisfaction of helping one of the oldest, most important organizations in Riverdale.

Your participation, donations and those of your friends and sponsors make a tremendous difference in the lives of many of our neighbors. Our goal is to provide $100,000 worth of scholarships to deserving families this year.

We can't do this without your help. In the past years we've had nearly 1,000 runners. This year we want to reach 1,000 again, and also reach our ambitious fundraising goals. Thanks from all of us at the Riverdale Y. We greatly appreciate your involvement, support and energy on our behalf.

Where Do the Funds Go?

Funds raised by teams and individuals helps provide:

  • Scholarships for children to attend our pre-kindergarten and after-school programming 
  • Funds for low-priced daily lunches for hundreds of Seniors each year
  • Scholarships for teens to join our Performing Arts programs

We can't do it without our sponsors
