The MVRA is a non-profit, all volunteer organization that works to promote health and fitness through running in the Tri-states area. We sponsor 4 major events of our own during the year and consult and assist with many other local events. Every year we give back to the community by making donations to many local charitable organizations just before Christmas. Proceeds from our races and particularly the MVRA Benefit Classic go towards helping those in need in the area.

2011 MVRA  Charitable Donations


Each year our Benefit Classic Marathon & 5K Race is held on Labor Day. It is from this race that we raise the funds to give back to the community each year. Over the year as participation has increased we have been able to offer more in way of monetary donations to many worthy organizations in the Tri-states area. This year we gave a total of $4000 by donating $250 to each of the follow organizations. It is of course, through the participation of the public in our events that we are able to continue to give back. Thank you so much for supporting us and in turn giving back to the community.
