07/04/2024 | Kingston, United States of America 2024 Bernie's Memorial 3 Mile Run/Walk

Bernie's Memorial 3 Mile Run/Walk & Kids Fun Run

Thursday, July 4, 2024

Bernie's Run is a valued tradition celebrating our nation's birthday since 1984. At the Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA, we believe strengthening people leads to a stronger, more caring community. We work with people who share our beliefs and mission and show their support by giving their time, talent, and financial support. By inspiring and involving people, we live our mission and put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

The YMCA is a cause-driven organization focused on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Every day we nurture the potential of kids, help people live healthier lives, and support our neighbors in need--because we believe in strengthening our community. Together...we build strong communities!
