The Anthem Richmond Marathon is an annual marathon held in Richmond, Virginia, USA. It was established in 1978 and has been run every year since. Jim Ryan, University of Virginia president and others are running the Marathon to support the student volunteer center, Madison House. Madison House operates as an independent nonprofit volunteer center for UVA students, raise funds for its programs and the work volunteers do within the Charlottesville and surrounding community. “Running a marathon can be a solitary pursuit, so over the past few years I’ve tried to make it about more than just me,” Jim Ryun said. “In the past I’ve run for teachers, but this time I’ll be running to support Madison House, which does incredible work helping students serve the community."   Nearly 4,300 UVA students volunteered more than 106,000 hours in the community last year through Madison House programs. Madison House will place student volunteers along the marathon route. (11/07/2018) Views: 906 ⚡AMP
