Make a Difference Day – October 28th!

make a differenceAfter you drop off Scouting for Food Bags on October 28th… join the Richmond community for the RVA Make a Difference 5K followed by an after party with food trucks, raffle, FREE kids area, live entertainment, silent auction, local vendors and a beer garden to benefit kids in our community… who wouldn’t want to join?  

On October 28th, volunteers from across the country will unite for Make A Difference Day, one of the largest annual single-days of service nationwide. Since 1992, volunteers and communities have come together on Make A Difference Day with a single purpose: to improve the lives of others.  This year, The Pediatric Connection is continuing their tradition of hosting a 5K on Make a Difference Day to support local charities with a similar mission to our own: Fit4Kids, Sportable and ChildSavers.
Volunteers are needed anytime from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. Volunteers under the age of 16 will need an adult lead. Duties will be assigned upon arrival. Duties include: early morning set-up, helping younger children with games, cheering on the runner and walkers, handing out water, clean-up, etc.
The 5k race starts at 11 am. Any volunteer time you can give would be greatly appreciated! Sign-up today at
