“University of Virginia President Jim Ryan will run in the Anthem Richmond Marathon on Saturday in support of Madison House.
The run is intended to help Madison House, which 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,” [President Ryan] 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. I want to thank everyone who is donating to help them do even more.””
