Make plans to join the fun this year!! It is a great way to enjoy the day with exercise and help grant the wish of a deserving child in the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

New West Orthopedic and Sports Rehabilitation and the Kearney Family YMCA are dedicated to providing healthy lifestyles. We also have a strong desire to be involved in the community. Our two organizations came together in 2012 to form a partnership with the goal of encouraging healthy lifestyles and raise funds to help support the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The Shamrock Shuffle consists of a 5/10K race through the streets/parks of Kearney, Nebraska. We encourage participants of all age groups and fitness levels. Walkers are encouraged as well.

Our inaugural 2012 year far exceeded our expectations. With over 500 participants, the community helped shatter our goal of 200 entries.

As a result, we were able to fund the wish of Brett Shubert, a 16 year old who has been battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. His wish was for a work shop with tools.

It is our hope that we can continue to make this an annual tradition and continue to make the dreams of children within the Make A Wish Foundation come true.
