It all started in 2011 with the crazy idea to put on a small community event at the UVA Research Park and raise a few hundred bucks for charity. Since then the 4 the Wounded 5k has grown to become one of the top 5 largest foot races in the region, and raised over $500,000 for military veterans, personnel, and their families!
In celebration of the 5th annual race, this year's proceeds will benefit Wounded Warrior Project and three locally-focused non-profits that provide services to wounded warriors and/or military veterans: Green Dogs Unleashed, Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, and Living Free - Chestnut Grove.
Please join us for a check presentation at Fridays After Five on August 7. We'll announce our final fundraising tally and celebrate along with the community at this FREE outdoor concert. Hope to see you there!
