The United for a Cause 5K and 1-mile Fun Run is back this year in a virtual format and will be held from May 5-12, 2021. 

The race is a collaboration between the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA and the Scotch Plains-Fanwood PTA Council. Proceeds benefit the Y’s LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program for cancer survivors and fund a Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School Scholarship for a graduating senior pursuing interest in a health-related field.

With a virtual run, you can run/walk the 5K or 1-mile Fun Run and record your time into our online system. Runners can enter their time between May 5 and 12, 2021. Emails will go out the week before the race with the link to enter your times.

Run on your own or start a small group. You can also ask family and friends to sponsor your run. All runners who submit their time will be entered into a raffle to win a prize. Goodie bags for the first 100 registrants. More details will become available on our Facebook page!

Since the inception of United for a Cause 10 years ago, 357 cancer survivors have completed the Y’s LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program, and $15,000 has been awarded to nine high school students for their education.

Together, we are making a difference in our community.
