Join YWCA at Purdue Fort Wayne for the 2nd Annual Race Against Racism 5K Walk/Run! Together we will walk, run, and move towards a better, more just community for all. Packet pickup starts at 9:00 AM and participants can enjoy some pre-race stretches facilitated by YogaSix at 9:30 AM. The race begins at 10:00 AM and will be chip-timed with awards according to age and gender. Award ceremony to follow the event at 11:00 AM.

The Race Against Racism is a fundraiser for YWCA's racial justice efforts, which includes community events that promote racial justice through engaging conversations, learning opportunities, and collaboration with local organizations. The 2023 Race Against Racism will focus on building equitable health through education on the intersection of race and health disparities. Race participants will receive a "couch to 5K" guide to prepare for the event, and education and engagement about equitable health will be offered leading up to the event and at the event.
