Mentally Healthy, One Stride at a Time

5K and 1-Mile Family Fun Run to Benefit Madison Area YMCA’s Programs that Heal the Whole Person: Emotionally, Mentally and Physically

The Madison Area YMCA's The Mind Matters 5K is an influential fundraising event for the Madison Area YMCA’s Annual Fund. The Annual Fund enables hundreds of children and families to participate in Y membership, innovative programming, wellness initiatives and services including child care, early childhood education and summer camps at the Madison Area YMCA’s Family Center and the F.M. Kirby Children’s Center of the Madison Area YMCA.

The 2022 Mind Matters 5K and 1-Mile Family Fun Run, that took place on May 15, was a great success! Thank you to all of our donors, runners, and volunteers! We hope to see you back next year!
