History of the 4Y5K

The 4th Year 5K is a beloved UVA tradition that has historically occurred on the morning of the last home football game. The race is held in memory of Leslie Baltz, a UVA student who passed away due to high-risk drinking. The race aims to create a positive tradition where students can safely come together and make lasting memories. We are excited to honor Leslie Baltz, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the UVA Leslie Baltz Art Study Fund. This year we are also honoring the students and families and the entire University community which has been impacted by this week's tragic events. #UVAStrong
