Run for fun. Run for fitness. Run with and for the survivors of domestic violence.

Everyone has their own reason to run. 
Whatever your reason, when we all come together, Yakima is better, we are all better.

our mission

Our goal is to leave a lasting impression in our community by bringing together athletes, businesses, leaders, and individuals motivated to make Yakima Valley - and the world - a better, healthier place for future generations. 

Whether it be domestic violence, mental health, or anything else, we believe no one should suffer in silence. 

What can we do?  We ask ourselves this every day as we strive to make Yakima safer and stronger. The Yakima Mile's partnership with our beneficiary, the YWCA Yakima, allows us to provide support and bring awareness to the invaluable services available to survivors of domestic violence through the YWCA.

The YWCA does some amazing work with not just women but men and families in the community. A community is only as strong as its most vulnerable. Support is needed, so we roll up our sleeves, we get our hands dirty, and we lean in. We want a healthy, strong, and vibrant community, which will only happen when we all come together. 

Miles Against Violece

miles against violence

"Every single one of us can make an impact in ending domestic violence..."

"...running becomes all the more beautiful when we run for each other" - Rosalie F.

The 2022 Yakima Mile introduced the Miles Against Violence (MAV) pledge run as an event within Yakima Mile. Rosalie Fish took up the torch to raise funds for YWCA Yakima. She ran 12 miles along the race course throughout the 2021 Yakima Mile while the other heats took place.

Miles Against Violence raises awareness for Domestic Violence (DV) and has raised over $70,000 for YWCA Yakima and its programs for DV survivors.
