Annual Events

Check out your favorite events that occur annually to benefit children and families through our We Build People Scholarship fund. You don't want to miss the opportunity to give back to your community! When you participate in a golf tournament, 5K race/run or a fundraising event you help us break down the financial barriers in our community and serve more families.

One Association, Two races

2022 Ruby C. Hunt YMCA Tournament


25th annual Trukey Trot 5k run/ Walk & fun run is a family-favorite tradition that takes place on Thanksgiving morning before all of the festivities begin for the day. Be sure to bring your friends and family so that you can wobble before you gobble!
The 5K begins at the LYCC of Gardner-Webb University and the race route goes throughout the beautiful town of Boiling Springs. Running a race that matters this holiday season is what the Turkey Trot is all about; all proceeds from the race go to the YMCA's We Build People Scholarship Fund so that we can provide financial assistance to those in need so that they can have access to the YMCA. We can't wait to see you there!

22nd Annual Jingle Bell Rockin’ Run

Join us for the 22nd Annual Jingle Bell Rockin’ Run 5k Walk/Run! We will offer a virtual option, but we are looking forward to gathering in person on the morning of December 3rd for the 5K race. Not only will we have an awesome 5K race, but we will also have the 1/2 mile kids fun run, customized Jingle Bell hoodies for participants, photo ops with Santa, Mrs. Clause & Dasher, & SO MUCH MORE!

The great benefit of running the Jingle Bell Rockin’ Run is that you get to run a race that makes a difference this holiday season. The proceeds from the race will go directly to those in need of financial assistance to have access to YMCA programs!
