Race Information

The Monster Dash 5k and 1 Mile Family Fun Run is an exciting fundraising run and event, raising money to provide financial assistance to families who are not able to afford after school care for their children.

The race is on Saturday, October 29, 2016. The race has something for everyone. A flat fast course through Downtown Stamford, starting and finishing at the Y. It’s a fun, costumed event with judging for best costumes! There’s a 1mile fun run for children and families. A great Halloween party complete with a haunted house, festive music and Halloween games.

The Y’s afterschool program, Leadership, Enrichment, Acceptance and Development (LEAD), offers children academic enrichment, homework support, swim lessons, nutrition, fitness, mentoring and college preparation and job skills for children in grades K through 12. The Stamford Y relies on the support from donors to ensure our after school program operations are sustained and families from low-income households are given the opportunity for their children to thrive.
