Description
Roanoke Valley Paralegal Association (RVPA) and Legal Aid Society of Roanoke Valley (LASRV) are coming together to host the first annual Jaunt for Justice 5K.  We invite both runners and walkers to register to participate in our inaugural 5K run/walk at Tinker Creek Greenway in Fallen Park in Roanoke, Virginia! 
 
Race Packet Pickup will be Friday, October 2nd, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Runabout Sports Roanoke.
 
The in-person race will begin at 10:00 a.m.  Check-in will open at 9:00 a.m.
 
The Medal Ceremony will begin at 11:00 a.m.
 
After the race, stay and enjoy food from The Lazy Bulldog Food Truck and ice cream from the Freedom First Scoop Truck!
 
The proceeds from Jaunt for Justice 5K will benefit The Legal Aid Society of Roanoke Valley.  LASRV is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides legal services to individuals who would not otherwise be able to afford it.
 
Publicly and privately funded, LASRV works to protect marginalized individuals from abuse and exploitation. From domestic violence to consumer fraud and landlord-tenant disputes, LASRV is committed to protecting the vulnerable from predators of all types.
 
For more than half a century, LASRV has represented clients in State and Federal courts, provided community training, advised clients, advocated for under-served communities, and provided leadership to local communities on important issues relating to social justice.
 
If you are unable to participate in the run/walk in person, but would still like to participate and support LASRV, we invite you to sign up for the Virtual Jaunt instead.  Participants who register for the Virtual Jaunt for Justice 5K will not be chip-timed and will not be competing for a medal, but will still receive a race packet with event T-shirt and race bib.
 
We hope you will join with us to help LASRV provide free legal services to under-served and marginalized members of our community.
Medals
Medals will be awarded to the overall top male and female runner, and to the top three male and female runners in each of the following age categories:

 

9 & under       10 to 14       15 to 19        20 to 29        30 to 39        40 to 49        50 to 59        60 to 69        70+
