Welcoming Week @ Baxter YMCA
Sep 13 @ 5:00 am – Sep 22 @ 10:00 pm
Welcoming Week @ Baxter YMCA | Indianapolis | Indiana | United States

We believe our communities are stronger when everyone feels welcome and we work together for the common good. Welcoming Week celebrates the growing movement of inclusive communities that fully embrace new Americans and their contributions to the social fabric of our country. It’s a chance for neighbors – both immigrants and U.S.-born residents – in Greater Indianapolis to get to know one another and celebrate what unites us as a community!

YMCAs across Central Indiana and throughout the U.S. will be hosting special events all week long. Please join us!

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.

Underdawg 5K logoThe 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!

REGISTER NOW!

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.

Our Center

The staff is extremely kind and helpful. An extreme variety of fitness exercises from youth to elderly. There's not a gym around that can offer what this place does. Also love the sauna and upgrades to the mens locker room.
