Each year, Club Running hosts philanthropy events that raise money for charities such as Girls on the Run, Special Olympics, and UVA Children's Hospital. Club members can get involved by registering to compete in the events, or volunteering to help organize. The efforts of our volunteers have played a crucial role in making each one such a tremendous success.
The Spring 2021 Run-a-thon raised $925 for UVA Children’s Hospital by selling vintage club merchandise and challenging members to virtual fundraising challenges. Past Run-a-thon prizes for competitors have included gift certificates to beloved destinations like Ragged Mountain Running Shop and Roots.
October 2021’s Hoo-lloween 5k raised over $300 for Special Olympics, attracting over 50 participants and 20 volunteers.
Club members who are interested in taking on a more involved role in the club's philanthropy efforts can join our philanthropy committee. Committee members help plan and organize philanthropic events alongside our executive board.
