Mark your calendars! The YWCA Greater Harrisburg's 16th Annual Race Against Racism will be held Saturday, April 25, 2020, rain or shine. 

Why do we hold the Race Against Racism? 

 We know overt and direct forms of racism are illegal. What we also know is that the legacy of racism still exists; some policies and practices continue to give opportunity to some while limiting access for others.

 Eliminating Racism. Empowering Women. Our mission-based programs serve to design client specific road maps to equal opportunity. They serve to break barriers and to build bridges. We will get up and do the work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed, until the world sees people of color, and women and girls, the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable. Our route is clear and the Race Against Racism helps us to raise awareness and funding.

 What can you do?

 We seek a just community for all, because the future deserves us all. Our power comes from all who join us.  We are thought leaders. We are fearless movers. And we are committed. Our voices rise together in the spirit of inclusivity.  

Join us because we can't do it alone.

The 5K run/walk kicks off at 8:30 a.m. and starts and ends at Soldier’s Grove. Day-of registration and packet pick-up opens at 7:30 a.m. See below for pre-race registration!
