RE Strong donates $100,000 to cancer center

On July 11, RE Strong Run officials presented a check to Virginia Commonwealth University’s Massey Cancer Center in Richmond.

The fourth RE Strong Family 5K and 10K Walk/Run took place at Hewick Plantation in early April. More than 700 participants filled the streets of scenic Urbanna, running and walking to raise funds to find a cure for cancer.

Over the previous three years, the RE Strong Run raised and donated $140,000 to the Massey Cancer Center. This year, Rachel, Sarah Grace and Trip Hurley, the children of the late Ruth Ellen and Walt Hurley, presented the $100,000 donation on behalf of the RE Strong Committee.
