For more than 10 years, the local community has shown their support for the Caldwell Family YMCA through the annual West Valley 5K/10K. West Valley Medical Center is proud to once again donate the proceeds from this year’s event — scheduled for 10:00am Saturday, April 22 — to its partners at the Caldwell Y.

The Caldwell Y’s Health and Wellness programs give youth, adults and families endless opportunities to achieve healthy living. In 2016, about 550 people registered for this race through the streets of Caldwell, raising more than $17,000 for this invaluable community resource. Registration is now available at ymcatvidaho.org or westvalleyisbetter.com for the 10K run, 5K run or 5K walk events. Adults and children who sign up before April 3 will receive $5 off the cost of registration, and the first 500 to register will receive a race t-shirt and swag bag. Packet pick up will be available from 8:00am to 7:00pm Friday, April 21, in West Valley’s Indian Creek Room and from 9:00 to 9:30am on race day.

The day starts with a special warm-up with the Caldwell Y team at 9:30am and ends with a post-race baked potato party, activities for the kids and more. This year’s course begins and ends at West Valley Medical Center and showcases Caldwell at its finest: from The College of Idaho to Indian Creek and historic downtown Caldwell.
