The Wishbone 5K Run/Walk is an annual Thanksgiving event for the entire community. This year we’re celebrating 10 years of families coming together for a morning of fitness and fun. Over 1300 runners and walkers participate last year. Because health and well-being is our top priority, the event will be facilitated in accordance with the Fishers Health Department and COVID safety guidelines.
Leashed dogs and strollers are welcome along the route, and a Kiddie Fun Run follows the race.
This event is part of the Inspire Indy 5K Series.
The Wishbone 5K is the Fishers YMCA’s signature event for the Annual Campaign, which helps to subsidize memberships, programs, summer camp and before/after school care. Since the race began in 2011, nearly $400,000 has been raised to ensure that no one is sent away from the YMCA due to the inability to pay. More than 10,000 participants have grown the Wishbone 5K into the premier Thanksgiving run in our community.
How Your Support Makes a Difference
Your participation in this annual Fishers tradition allows us to grow the reach of the Fishers YMCA Annual Campaign. Your support will help the Y respond to current crucial needs of families from our community and ensure the Y continues to be strong as we emerge better together.
More than one in every four members and one in every five program participants receive financial assistance. Providing Y for All means that we can assist more than 7,000 local families each year. The YMCA is for everyone, but we need your help to make that possible!
Plans for our 2021 event are underway; please stay tuned.
YMCA Good Friday Breakfast Attendee,
We are in unprecedented times. In light of the threat posed by COVID-19 (coronavirus), the YMCA is taking some extraordinary measures to ensure the health and safety of our members, our program participants, our YMCA staff and our community.
Therefore, following guidance from health officials and state and local community leaders, we have decided to cancel the YMCA Good Friday Breakfast.
We are disappointed, but remain extremely thankful for your continued support of the YMCA Mission and this annual event. We appreciate your understanding, and ask that you pray for the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis as we navigate through this challenging season.
P.S. We are already planning and praying for next year’s event!
Actively living out the “C” in the YMCA,
Pastor Joshua Heaston
Director of Christian Mission
YMCA of Greater Indianapolis
