Walk Fit - Foundation of YRMC

The Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center are passionate about joining the fight against childhood obesity. This program was devised to do exactly that, all while encouraging family health awareness and overall healthy lifestyles. To achieve their goal of a “healthy tomorrow” for all, they require a minimum participation of seven, once monthly evening walkathon events. These fun and engaging events welcome all and encourage the entire family to partake.

Fast Feet - Youth 5K/10K Fun Runs & Walks with the City of Yuma

Because of a continued generous sponsorship from the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) we are able to once again offer our annual themed runs and fun walks for FREE to Yuma school children in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade as we encourage kids to get active and be healthy.  Note: Children may participate in all of the 2016-2017 runs and walks.
Upon completion of each event, Fast Feet runners will receive their time, a special token for either the 5K run (3.1 miles) or 10K run (6.2 miles). In addition Gold, Silver and Bronze medallions are awarded in each separate age group (9 and under) (10-12) (13-15).
Five Star Walkers at any age who participate in 5 out of the 6 Fun Walks will receive a certificate at the end of the series. Please note: Those who received a timed bib will not be allowed to transfer their points to the 5 Star Walker program.
