The 4th Annual YWCA Race To End Racism, presented by TC Energy Foundation, is a 5K/1 Mile Walk on Charleston's West Side on Saturday, April 25, 2020.

The Race to End Racism is an annual event that raises funds for the YWCA Racial Justice Program and brings the community together to raise awareness and celebrate diversity, while engaging the community to take part in the national YWCA campaign: Stand Against Racism, where YWCAs around the country organize consciousness-raising events in their communities. 

Last year was our biggest year yet, with more than 900 individuals registered to participate. This year we hope to have even  more people join us as we stand against racism! 

Please join us on April 25th, 2020 for our 4th annual Race to End Racism!
