he 6th 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 23, 2022.

‚ÄčThe Race to End Racism is an annual event that raises funds for the YWCA Racial Equity and Inclusion 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. 

For the past two years, we have held our race virtually. We are excited to have our event in-person and hope that you will join us as we stand against racism!
