Special Events

The Crossroads Y includes Griffith, Hammond, Southlake and Whiting branches. Together we hold a variety of events that benefit many areas of our communities. 

Hub Run

This 5K and 2K race in Crown Point has been running for over 35 years. Funds raised through this event help our program scholarship fund that helps families and children participate in Y programs. Learn more.

Rock 'N' Rail

This 5K race in Griffith raises money for our financial assistance program! These funds will help more children attend our after school program, more families build stronger bonds with Y membership and services, and more seniors improve their health while connecting with new friends. Learn more.
