The Alumni Charity Challenge was established in 2013 by the VCU Alumni Richmond Chapter. During the past five years, the Alumni Charity Challenge has collected over 40 tons of canned goods with the support of over 30+ colleges from in-state and out-of-state. The Central Virginia Food Bank serves 31 counties and five cities, from the Northern Neck to Louisa County and south to the North Carolina border.
The partnership with the Central Virginia Food Bank is a continuation of the VCU Alumni Richmond Chapter's ongoing mission to serve the Richmond community through outreach. This event was established with the hopes of becoming the catalyst in mobilizing all alumni chapters in Virginia to provide ongoing support to the Central Virginia Food Bank through raising awareness, educating a unified Richmond community and collecting canned goods to actively fight food insecurity in Central Virginia.
2018 Registration is now closed.
