VAN METRE COMPANIES CELEBRATES RECORD-BREAKING DONATION WITH 31ST ANNUAL 5K RUN FOR CHILDREN’S NATIONAL HOSPITAL

BROADLANDS, Va., June 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Van Metre Companies hosted their 31st annual 5K Run and 1-Mile Fun Run supporting Children’s National Hospital.

Contributions came from 128 sponsors and over 400 race participants.

Jeannie Van Metre, Race Committee Chairperson, shared, “I am so grateful for the overwhelming support we received for the 2023 Van Metre 5K Run. Together, we raised a record breaker of over $270,000, bringing our total over the last 31 years to over $3.1 million for Children’s National. It is an honor and privilege to partner with such an incredible organization that performs lifesaving work nothing short of miraculous. None of this would have been possible without the efforts of our race committee, volunteers, sponsors, and all those who contributed their time and resources to make this event a success year after year. Thank you for your dedication and support!”

Established in 1992 to benefit Children’s National Hospital, the Van Metre 5K Run has raised over $3.1 million.
