Lunar New Year 5K/10K Run/Walk
Year of the Tiger - 4720

Live In-Person Run: March 6th, 2022

Virtual Run: February 1st - March 6th, 2022

Our world has been through significant changes over the last few years that have disrupted the way we live, work and play. The Chinatown YMCA has adapted to the changes and stepped up even further to help those in need.

Our 44th Annual CCHP Lunar New Year Run will create opportunities for people to participate in the way they are most comfortable. In addition to the live, in-person race, we will offer a virtual race this year to include our friends and partners from across the globe.

Our CCHP LNY Run is a great opportunity to get engaged and make a positive impact on the community while strengthening spirit, mind and body.

This year we celebrate the Lunar New Year and emphasize the traits of the Tiger, known for its resiliency, perseverance, strength and hardworking nature. The Tiger represents our community and its power and confidence to fight through this challenging time. We stand together to honor everything that makes our community unique.

Together, let’s create a bold vision for the future – then make it a reality.

A future where every child is inspired and prepared for success.
A future where every member of our community thrives.
A future where the world is a safe and equitable place for everyone.

Our vision of a better future is at the root of everything we do.

With your support, we will continue to fight for better futures for every member of our community for generations to come.
