Commuter Connect is hosting the fourth annual Car Free Day Indy celebration on Friday, Sept. 20. The day is designed to encourage carpools and other forms of sustainable transportation. If you take the online pledge at carfreedayindy.com/pledge to carpool, vanpool, bike, walk or take the bus that day, you’ll be entered to win great prizes.
If you work in downtown Indy, stop by Cummins Plaza, 301 E. Market St., from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and grab breakfast on your way to work. You’ll join others who believe in the power of ridesharing and/or leaving the car at home, and you’ll get free coffee and bagels while they last. Then, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., head to Monument Circle for lunch and celebrate with music, info tables, and free Chick-fil-A while it lasts.

Underdawg 5K supports Indy College Students & Neighbors
The Intercollegiate YMCA is changing Indianapolis by connecting college students from UIndy, Butler, IUPUI, and Ivy Tech to service opportunities that IMPACT our community, INFLUENCES change, and teaches them to INTEGRATE service into their life after college.
The students we engage provide free after school and day camp programs to youth in low-income apartment communities that ensure academic success, improve behavior through positive mentoring, and change their attitude towards their education. This program has contributed to an increase in overall grades and test scores, as well as played a part in the reduction of youth-involved crime in the communities.
Help us continue these programs!
Your support through the 5K will help us continue our programs and allow us to expand in more communities and change the lives of youth and college students across Indianapolis.
Don’t stop now! Check out all of the races in the YMCA Inspire Indy 5K Series.
