Let’s Go, RVA! Our mission is to inspire active living in all corners of our community. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to advocating for safe & accessible bike & pedestrian infrastructure, offer free fitness classes, support run clubs during non-pandemic times at area schools, & develop fun, new participatory events for our entire community.

Now, more than ever, our community needs to be physically active. Due to COVID-19, we had to stop all in-person events & cancel all in-person programming in the Spring 2020. Since then, we have reimaged our events & programs bringing virtual & social distancing options to our region. Please consider donating to Sports Backers, with your support, we can make this region a more vibrant place to live & work!
