2nd Annual RVA Cares 5K

Saturday September 19th, 2020

Official Website


The 2nd Annual RVA Cares 5k is now a virtual event. A virtual race is a race that can be run, walk or stroll from any location you choose- on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track, the possibilities are endless.  You get to do your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. But that doesn't mean you have to be alone or can't have fun participating in this 5k! Gather your family, friends and neighbors, and form a team to support a great cause! You can begin logging your miles September 1 with the event culminating on September 19th.

Have fun training for the event, sharing photos on social media even just silly moments dashing from your couch to the fridge counts! It's all in the name of charity so have fun, raise some funds and share the kindness. Use #RVACares5k and #Better2getherRVA on social media so we can follow you and cheer you on! 

Beginning September 14 there will be exciting announcements and sponsor shout outs on the Better2gether RVA Facebook page (https://facebook.com/better2getherrva) that you won't want to miss. Head over and like our page now to stay up to date. 

On Saturday, September 19, 2020 head to our Facebook page at 9am to watch our Livestream event, hosted by   Jeff Wicker of Mix 98.1. We'll catch up with teams around RVA doing their 5k, finish the race and offer giveaways during our broadcast- but you must be tuned in to win! After all, we are better together.

Why are we doing this? Support services abound in Richmond for families of children fighting well-known illnesses like cancer and diabetes, but Better2gether is the only organization providing support to families of children battling rare and complex illnesses.
