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 2022 hybrid race model, participants can opt to run, walk, or jog on race day, April 23, 2022. Or you can participate virtually by tracking your 10k run/walk during the week of April 16-23 and submitting your results to SportsBackers. For more details visit their website.

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.
