  • Why? Raise money to support homeless young people

Every year brave individuals take on Exeter’s Great West Run and raise thousands of pounds in support of YMCA Exeter’s work with homeless young people. The young people we support have often experienced homelessness and this effects their ability to cope with everything from mental health to getting employment.

Sponsorship money that is raised through the Great West Run enables us to continue supporting more young people, equipping them with practical tools to develop their wellbeing in body, mind and spirit.

Will you take part in Exeter’s Great West Run and play a part in championing vulnerable young people in our city? All our participants aim to raise £250 in sponsorship, but many raise much, much more when you tell them you are running for the YMCA.
