Remote Area Medical (RAM) at UVA is excited to announce the second annual RAM @ UVA 5K on Saturday, March 18th 2023!
RAM is a nonprofit organization that provides free healthcare to those in need through mobile clinics offering medical, dental, and vision services to underserved and uninsured individuals. Since it was founded in 1985, RAM’s Corps of more than 172,900 volunteers – licensed dental, vision, medical, and veterinary professionals – have treated more than 863,700 individuals delivering more than $174 million worth of free care. More information about the organization can be found on their website, at https://www.ramusa.org/.
As a chapter of the organization, our goal is to promote that mission and host a biennial free clinic in Fishersville, VA. This is a big dream, and we will need your help! We successfully hosted a clinic in November 2022, the first to be organized entirely by a collegiate chapter, where we provided over 500 patients with $250,000 in medical care. The cost of hosting our own clinic is almost $30,000, and we continue to work actively in our community to raise these funds. Whether you decide to participate in person or virtually, all proceeds from the race will go towards funding for our next clinic to help bring the mission of RAM closer to the Charlottesville community!
All in-person participants will have their timing results available online after the race and will receive refreshments and a T-shirt (if registered by 3/1) on race day. The top three finishers will also receive a prize basket donated by local Charlottesville businesses. Bib and T-shirt pickup will begin at 9:30 am on race day.
See you on race day!
Sponsored by the UVA Alumni Association’s Student Engagement Fund
All participants registered before 3/1 will receive a short-sleeve cotton T-shirt and each registrant will receive a race bib, snacks, and water. The top three finishers will also receive a prize from local Charlottesville businesses!
