Team Challenge

The Arc of Northern Virginia Corporate & Community Team Challenge

The Arc of Northern Virginia Corporate & Community Team Challenge is the premier corporate challenge foot race and the area’s only team-based race with teams of 5-7 runners. This year’s race was held on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at Burke Lake Park in Fairfax Station, Virginia and it was a beautiful day!

A note from our Team Coordinator, Diane Monnig:

“Thank you all so much for participating in the 39th Annual Arc of Northern Virginia Corporate Team Challenge 8K. and 2M Walk. We are grateful for your support and  appreciate your commitment and enthusiasm for the race/walk. Thank you also for organizing your teams.  I know this is not an easy task!


A note from our Executive Director, Rikki Epstein:

“Thanks to all of our Sponsors, everyone who helped with race bag stuffing and to everyone who helped out the day of the race with all sorts of tasks to ensure a very successful event. Thanks to those who helped promote the race by sharing information on social media.
The 2017 Team Challenge helped raise over $60,000 to support the critical work of The Arc of Northern Virginia and was our highest total raised in recent years!!!  YAY!!!”


A note from our Volunteer Coordinator, Lynn Ruiz:

“I want to thank each and every one of you for making our event a success. Without your support we just cannot make the day run smoothly. At times the day might have been disorganized but in the end we accomplished what we needed to get done – an enjoyable, safe, and fruitful (we raised over 60K) experience for all.  
I hope you had a moment to look around and see the individuals with disabilities taking part in our race. This is a what The Arc stands for as we strive to actively support full inclusion and participation in the community.”
