Join Us For our annual Halloween themed 5k/1m run at a time and place of your choice. This is an exciting fundraising event, raising money to provide financial assistance to families who are not able to afford after-school care for their children.
Join us virtually, at a time and place of your choice, for the Stamford Y's Annual Monster Dash 5k and 1 Mile Family Fun Run! This is an exciting fundraising event, raising money to provide financial assistance to families who are not able to afford after-school care for their children.
This year will be a little different - here is how it works: You chose a day between Saturday, October 24, and Saturday, October 31, 2020, pick a location that will allow you to respect social distancing guidelines, and a time that works with your schedule to do the race! The Monster Dash has something for everyone; there’s even a 1-mile fun run for children and families. Since this is a virtual race, you decide when and where you complete your race. Do you have a treadmill at home? That'll do! Want to go for a bike ride? OK! Rather run outside? That works too! Whether you're training, looking to compete in another race, or just want to get moving, your participation will help raise awareness and funds to support our work in the Stamford community.
All proceeds benefit the Stamford YMCAs after school program, LEAD Academy (Leadership, Enrichment, Acceptance, and Development). LEAD Academy offers children academic enrichment, homework support, swim lessons, nutrition, fitness, and mentoring. The Stamford Y relies on the support from donors to ensure our after school program operations are sustained and families from low-income households are given the opportunity for their children to thrive.

Adults $12.50 / Youth (ages 5 to 18) $6 (will not receive T-shirt)
