SMBMI Team Members Raise Funds In Highland Y Run

Y Run

The Highland Y Run is the longest-running community 5K activity in Highland that has spanned over 40 years to help raise funds for the YMCA of the East Valley and the organization’s community programs.

The YMCA of the East Valley serves people of all ages and backgrounds through a wide range of programs that focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Its financial assistance program benefits the community by offering scholarships to Highland youth and families who have limited resources to participate in the programs.

During the annual run in late January, team members of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians joined the community to aid the organization’s financial assistance, community engagement and healthy living programs. San Manuel sponsored the 5K and 10K races that took place at Arroyo Verde Elementary School in Highland for the third consecutive year.
