Nurses Run for Education

Starts Friday May 6th, 2022

Roanoke, VA

Official Website


We are excited to announce our 2nd annual Nurses Run for Education 5k event that will be held virtually. Nurses week is May 6th-12th 2022, so this means you, your family, friends or race team can run or walk anywhere you feel most comfortable or challenging. Participants can run or walk at their own pace and without judgement (this is the best part about it being virtual!). The purpose of this annual event is to support our nursing students and our nursing program, while promoting a sense of community and compassion in our local region. Know a nurse? LOVE a nurse? Then support this cause!    

Proceeds of this event will support our AAS (RN) Nursing Program and nursing students at Virginia Western Community College in Roanoke Virginia. 

If you are interested in sponsoring this event, please reach out to the race director directly (Darla Summers MSN RN) at [email protected]

If you feel passionate to donate to this cause, the direct link to do so is https://www.virginiawestern.edu/giving/give-now/. Under Making a Difference, scroll to "other" and type in "Nursing Program Fund." Your generous donation again will support our future nurses and nursing program.  

We look forward to sharing more information about this 5k event in the next few months, so stayed tuned and share the event! The official link to order your race t-shirt will be posted in mid-February once sponsorship closes. You can have your t-shirt/swag mailed to your address or you can pick up at Fuzzy Pickle T-shirts 1507 Apperson Drive Salem, VA 24153.
