This past Saturday, The UVA Foundation, along with Bad to the Bone Endurance Sports, hosted the 2nd annual 4 the Wounded 5k! The on and off-road event that was held at the University of Virginia Research Park to raise money for Wounded Warrior Project, which benefits wounded veterans returning from overseas.
There were 984 Central Virginians running for a terrific, and often overlooked cause.

- To raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.
- To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
