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.
Support the Intercollegiate YMCA while getting some work done around the house! Our fall clean program is our annual fundraiser to help support our Intercollegiate work throughout the year.

Our fall clean program will provide 3-4 students to come to your house to perform household chores/projects such as the ones listed below.
