Join the Massey Challenge!

VCU Massey Cancer Center is the official charitable partner of the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k presented by Kroger on Saturday, September 26, 2020. Leading up to race day, we invite you to make your miles matter by joining the Massey Challenge. What is the Challenge? A way to use your 10k to honor those who have battled cancer, to unite the community towards a world without cancer, and to fund cures for cancer right here in Richmond. 

What's it take to raise just $100? Asking 10 friends for $10 – it’s that easy.  Once you raise $100, you receive Team Massey’s technical shirt to wear on race day.

We also provide in-honor-of, in-memory-of, and survivor bibs to accompany your race shirt so you can let your fellow 10k-ers know how you’re making your miles matter and meet a few new folks along the way!

Together, support Massey’s cancer research mission, celebrate our health, and show off our community pride! As part of our team, you help us by generating one more dollar... one more discovery... and one more life saved. Thank you for joining Team Massey! 

Register for the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k on Saturday, September 26, 2020, by visiting!

Please note, race registration fees do not benefit Massey.
