Let’s Go, RVA! Sports Backers mission is to inspire people to live actively. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to producing quality participatory events that motivate residents & visitors to be more active, hosting group exercise programs for both youth & adults, & advocating for safe bike & pedestrian infrastructure. 

Although we have had to morph and change our normal programming & events over the past two years, we have not stopped pursing our mission. And we are excited to be back to hosting in-person events/programs & have been met with an equal amount of excitement from the community & participants.
