The Riverdale Run is one of the finest community fundraising events we produce at the Riverdale Y. Not only is it a challenging athletic event for some, but it is also one of the most beautiful tracks for running that you can find.
Every year we host nearly a thousand runners from all over the area. It’s a great way for the entire family to enjoy a beautiful day with a beautiful run to support a wonderful local community center.
This year, funds raised from the Riverdale Run will be used to support the Riverdale Y Senior Center. The Senior Center has nearly 1,000 members and serves the senior community in Riverdale with subsidized meals, entertainment, learning, support, and companionship. Chances are if you live in Riverdale, you are or you know one of our members!
Your participation this year will allow the Riverdale Y to better serve our community parents and grandparents. Please honor and remember a parent or grandparent by participating the 2019 Riverdale Run.
The Riverdale Y Senior Center (RYSC) celebrates the involvement of adults 60+. It is a community of sociable and vibrant members making the most of their free time as members of the Riverdale Senior Center. The RYSC offers music, art, and cultural discussions at least once a week. Our programs include lectures, art classes, films, and more. We also offer senior discounts for special performances and matinee shows at the Y.
RYSC is supported by the New York City Department of Aging, local elected officials, participant contributions, donations from people like you. RYSC membership is free to persons 60 years of age and older and includes a variety of engaging programs and activities. For more information about the Senior Center, contact Sharon Asherman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
When you sign up for the race there will be an opportunity for you to post a picture of your loved one(s) you wish to honor or remember. The photos will appear on this website for the duration of the period leading up to the race and a few months beyond. You can also honor them by making a donation to the Riverdale Y through this website, and you can get others to sponsor you in the race in their honor as well. Instructions can be found on this website
