Why Run?

Proceeds of our Team Challenge support The Arc of Northern Virginia, a non-profit working to promote and protect the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) and actively support their full inclusion and  participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.



Can My Company Sponsor My Team?

team photos from our 2016 Team ChallengeYES! We encourage corporate sponsorship. Many of our corporate and community teams have returned every year—with some participating for well over two decades—because The Arc of Northern Virginia Team Challenge is a unique event that allows you to:

Boost employee morale and camaraderie by engaging in a team sport and friendly
   competition among colleagues or others in your industry.

Promote a culture of fitness and healthy lifestyles in your company.

Receive branding and logo recognition in front of hundreds of local runners at the event
   and thousands of friends and supporters through our social media and online outreach.

Support a cause that resonates with your employees, many of whom may have children,
   family members, friends, or neighbors with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Demonstrate your commitment to strengthening the local community your
   company calls home.

For more information about a company sponsorship contact Howard Stregack.
