Ready, Set… RUN For Charity!

 

Spring is race season and Brambleton Town Center has already played host to several successful charity runs this year. Each family-friendly event has brought many runners and walkers together from all corners of Northern Virginia and beyond, united in an effort to support their cause: from breast cancer to Type 1 diabetes and lyme disease. In just 3 weekends, these local philanthropists have raised tens of thousands of dollars to positively impact the lives of their friends and family members who struggle with these illnesses. As an added bonus, many of these “athletes” are working towards earning their Triple Crown Finisher commemorative race medal by completing 3 out of the 5 Race Brambleton-sponsored events throughout the year!
