Fishers YMCA Wishbone 5K / The Tradition Continues

The Wishbone 5K Run/Walk is an annual Thanksgiving event for the entire community. This year we’re celebrating 11 years of families coming together for a morning of fitness and fun.

Leashed dogs and strollers are welcome along the route but, in the interest of safety, we ask that these participants start near the back of their corrals.

Why Participate?

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 $450,000 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!
