Miles For A Mission

Miles for a Mission is a race series hosted by the Y to raise charitable funds needed to provide everyone the opportunity to be healthy and thrive, to connect with others, and contribute to a better community. 

The Y is a positive force in West Michigan. Every day, our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do to break down barriers and create access for all. From tackling the achievement gap to teaching healthy habits, or giving people the chance to strengthen our community through volunteering – everything the Y does is in service of building a better us. Y donors, volunteers, members and partners make the difference. Together, we take on the challenges that shape the future of West Michigan.
