DULLES GREENWAY’S RUN THE GREENWAY RACE PROVIDES A PIVOTAL
FUNDRAISING PLATFORM FOR LOUDOUN CARES
Inaugural family-friendly race builds community and promotes fundraising
benefitting Loudoun County charities
Sterling, VA MARCH 22, 2021 – The Dulles Greenway is hosting its inaugural Run the Greenway Race on
May 1, 2021. The family friendly event provides a socially distant convening opportunity and fundraising
vehicle for Loudoun Cares and 23 participating Loudoun County, Virginia charities.
“The Dulles Greenway is committed to serving the Loudoun community and we are honored to directly
support the positive contributions that our charity partners are making in our local community during
this difficult time,” said TRIP II CEO Renée N. Hamilton. “We are excited to welcome the region’s runners
and their families to the first annual Run the Greenway race and we are pleased to be able to offer our
non-profit partners a powerful fundraising platform that will help them advance their important work.”
All fundraising funds from Run the Greenway will benefit Loudoun County charities. Loudoun Cares has
registered a growing team of runners and fundraisers and we are encouraging our members and
partners to join our team of supporters as 100 percent of funds raised by our team will go directly to
Loudoun Cares. In addition, Dulles Greenway will donate $5,000, $2,500, and $1,000 to participating
charities and individuals who raise the largest amount of money. The toll road will also donate $1,000 to
select participating charities on behalf of race winners.
“We are thrilled to participate in Run the Greenway. What a great community event to celebrate our
community nonprofits in a safe and healthy way,” commented Valerie Pisierra executive director of
The inaugural Run the Greenway race will start and finish at the Dulles Greenway’s Mainline Toll Plaza.

option. Race participants will join their community in celebrating the Dulles Greenway’s 25 anniversary
of connecting Loudoun County to the Washington Metropolitan region.
