RUN OR WALK WITH US....
Come run or walk our 5K with us to help us keep our 5 programs running during COVID-19. Park View Community Mission is a 501c3, non profit here in the heart of Lynchburg. We support the low income community with help, healing and hope. Our 5 programs, Food for Families, Food for Thought, Life Skills Institute, Park View Cafe and the Community Resource Center, are all growing at a rapid pace as we meet the needs of our neighbors. Due to the pandemic, the need has been even greater, and closing has never been an option for us. Will you make it your mission to help us with ours?

We are pleased to provide an opportunity for assisted participants to enjoy race day. An assisted participant is typically being pushed in a stroller "appropriate" for the event (ie.. hand break, tether, appropriate wheels). Both the participant being pushed and the pusher are required to register for this event. Assisted participants will start prior to the start and be ranked separately from the event. Both the pusher and assisted participant should indicate this classification during the registration process for our planning purposes.
Registration fees are non-transferable & non-refundable. An entry can only be used for the person registered for the entry. Entries cannot be deferred to the following year or a future event.
If our 5K is cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions/mandates all participates will be moved to our "virtual" 5K event.
