West Valley Medical Center and the Caldwell YMCA have teamed up with Destination Caldwell to move a 16-year tradition to the heart of the community. The West Valley Rockin' Fun Run will showcase beautiful downtown Caldwell on Saturday, May 7 at 10:00 am. The 1-mile fun run takes participants throughout the downtown pathways, along Indian Creek. The race starts and ends at the plaza on 6th street next to the bridge at Treasure Valley Community College.
This re-energized event remains focused on raising funds for the Caldwell YMCA wellness programs.
“We appreciate the support of life changing Y programs. The Caldwell YMCA’s commitment to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility is steadfast,” said Erik Bullock, Executive Director, Caldwell YMCA. “The Y creates welcoming, inclusive spaces where people of all abilities can access the support they need. The West Valley Race raises needed financial support to make it possible for us to offer financial assistance to program participants within our facilities and provide services outside the four walls in healthcare centers, local schools, as well as other identified needs in the community. No one is turned away due to the inability to pay.”
Registration is $15 for adults, $10 for kids, and all registrations include a t-shirt. There is still time to register for the race here: https://tinyurl.com/WestValleyFunRun
“This is a beloved community tradition so we are thrilled to have even more partners this year and bring family and friends together in the heart of the community,” said Kaycee Emery, West Valley Marketing Director and Race Chair. “We've made this a destination event for the whole family. Those who participate can enjoy the fun run and then check out the Mother's Day Market at Indian Creek Plaza after they cross the finish line.”
Several businesses in downtown Caldwell will be offering discounts to race participants who show their t-shirts on Saturday, May 7 following the fun run.
Partners in the race include West Valley Medical Center, Caldwell YMCA, Destination Caldwell, Norco, Idaho Press, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Silverhawk Realty and more.
