This is an AMAZING opportunity for Richmond families!

 

On September 18, 2013, Brandywine Realty Trust and the Lingerfelt Companies will host The Amazing Raise 5k at the Boulders, a run/walk that winds through the beautifully landscaped roads and serene trails of the Boulders Office Park.  The event is a true celebration of our community as it coincides with the first day of GiveRichmond’s 3rd Annual Amazing Raise, a 36-hour online giving challenge that has raised more than $1.8 million for local charities over the past two years.

The race creates an opportunity for both individuals and teams to not only run for fun and personal wellness, but also campaign for their favorite nonprofit organizations and encourage philanthropy among their peers.

Helping Others

A portion of every registration, as well as sponsorships from local businesses, will fund grant prizes that will allow runners an opportunity to compete on behalf of their favorite charities. There are both individual and team prizes available. Winners will designate an Amazing Raise charity to receive their prize of up to $1,000.

See Celebration for prize details and a list of eligible charities.

Team CJ is at it again this year too! They’re officially a team in the Amazing Raise 5k and they invite YOU to register and walk or run with them in support of CJ’s Thumbs Up Foundation! Join “Team CJ” while registering and get ready to enjoy a beautiful race (or lovely walk) for a wonderful cause.
