4Y5K: Community of Care

9:00AM EST - 12:00PM EST


The "4Y5K: Community of Care" is a longstanding UVA tradition presented by the Peer Health Educators to promote bystander intervention strategies across Grounds and create an opportunity for the UVA and Charlottesville communities to celebrate a positive tradition together. 

Please email with any questions!

History of the 4Y5K

The 4Y5K 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 excited to announce that we will be donating some of our proceeds to UVA's Collegiate Recovery Program.
