It's that time again - time to lace up those walking shoes and join your friends and neighbors in supporting the Caldwell YMCA! Each year, the West Valley 5K/10K Walk Run raises critical funds for the Caldwell Y's Health & Wellness Programs.

Through the Y, youth, adults, and families have access to endless opportunities to achieve healthy living. There is a place for everyone in the Y's programs, which include land and water sports, weight loss and nutrition, disease prevention and management, baby/parenting wellness and more. YMCA staff are qualified and devoted to providing the support and safety one may need on his/her journey to a healthier, happier life.

In 2014, more than 400 people took to the streets of Caldwell for the Walk/Run, generating about $10,700 for this invaluable community resource.

The race, which begins and ends at West Valley Medical Center, will take you through historic Downtown Caldwell, Fairview Golf Course, The College of Idaho and the scenic Indian Creek area. After the race, stick around for barbecue, raffle prizes, a bounce house for the kids and more.

Race registration is now open, and if you register before April 6, you'll save $5 off the already-low $25 registration fee. Kids are only $10. Go to to register today!
