Welcome to the

Niles-Buchanan YMCA

The Niles-Buchanan YMCA strengthens the foundations of our community through well-being and fitness, camps, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We’re more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

Attention runners & athletes! It's time to start training again because our Annual YMCA Thanksgiving Day Run will be here sooner than you think. Every Thanksgiving, hundreds of runners have gathered in Niles to run in our annual Thanksgiving Day Run in support of the Y's financial assistance fund.

You, your family and friends are invited to participate in one of our four great races. Our 10K/5K races, 5K Walk and 1 mile fun run/walk are open to you and the entire family. Add a whole infield of entertainment and you have a Thanksgiving tradition that appeals to every generation while raising money for a critical social service in our community.

The races will be held on Thursday, November 22, 2012
