Debbie's Dash: The Debbie Linton Memorial Glow 5k

Join us on Sunday, October 11, 2020 for Debbies's Dash 5k.  This race is the fourth race in the Run the Valley for the Greater Valley YMCA Race Series!  All proceeds from the Suburban North YMCA's 5k will support the Y's Financial Assistance Fund. 


For over 40 years, the Greater Valley YMCA, Suburban North Branch, has been serving the Catasauqua community.  The goal of the Debbie Linton Memorial Glow 5k event is to remember and capture the energy of Debbie and others who fought a brave battle against breast cancer.  The challenging stretches of hills will showcase the beautiful borough of Catasauqua. 


As a tribute to Debbie, the 5K will encompass Alumni Field in Catasauqua. All participants will receive a glow necklace to wear during the event.
