STEP UP to the Massey Challenge!

STEP UP to Fundraising!

STEP UP to Community!
STEP UP to A Future without cancer!
STEP UP to your Health!

TOGETHER we can make a difference. 

What: Massey fundraising challenge in conjunction with the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k. Sign up for both the 10k and the Massey Challenge. STEP UP and Make Your Miles Matter by fundraising for cancer research.


Where: Virtual and/or in-person 

Create a team to help you fundraise in the weeks leading up to the 10k. With the 2021 hybrid race model, participants can opt to run, walk, or jog on the official courses in Byrd Park or Dorey Park, or use their own course and take part from anywhere.


When: Fundraise in April, May, and June. The 10k courses and packet pick-up in Byrd Park and Dorey Park will be available from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm on Thursday, June 3, Friday, June 4, Saturday, June 5, and Sunday, June 6. For more information click here.

Why: Cancer doesn’t stop for a pandemic and neither do we. Each and every dollar raised supports lifesaving cancer research being done here in our community. More discoveries mean more lives saved and more lives saved makes our community stronger.

Please note, joining the Massey Challenge does not register you for the 10k. To register for the 10k, please visit the 10k website
