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.
April 2023's "Chocolate Milk Mile" raised over $250 for the Charlottesville Free Clinic. Prizes included gift cards to local restaurants.
December 2022's Holiday 5K raised over $1100 for the families of Lavel Davis Jr., Devin Chandler, and D'Sean Perry. Prizes included gift cards to local restaurants and Ragged Mountain Running Store Merchandise.
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.
