UPDATED: 8th Annual ‘Bodies In Motion’ Reschedule

UPDATED: Oct. 28 at 7:45 p.m.

The Blue Ridge Orthopedic Foundation has rescheduled its ‘Bodies In Motion’ race for the morning of Nov. 10.

Warrenton, VA – October 18, 2019 – Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center and The Foundation of Blue Ridge Orthopaedics will host the Bodies in Motion Race – 5K, 10k & Fun Run, a race to give back to the community, on Sunday morning, October 27th. Registrations can be made at www.CommunityRaceDay.com. More than 150 of all ages are currently registered, from Loudoun, Prince William, Culpeper, Fairfax, Rappahannock, and Fauquier. Last year’s race saw more than 300 people.

Since 2012, the Bodies in Motion races have raised $215,000 for local organizations that contribute to the common good.

“This is a run for all,” says Jill Smith, race co-director and Director of HR at Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center. “We enjoy bringing the community together and giving a reason to run: each other! The race is for experienced and beginning runners and walkers alike – from athletes to seniors and children.”

The race will take place at the Warrenton Aquatics and Recreation Facility (WARF), in Warrenton. With an emphasis on fun and community, the event includes a children’s activity zone and an aerobic race warm-up led by John Ferguson, certified fitness instructor at the WARF. Sean Polster, Warrenton Town Councilman will emcee the event. Staff from Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center and Blue Ridge Physical Therapy will run/walk.

The event typically brings in more than 300 race registrants, and 100+ participating businesses, by way of sponsorships and tabletop exhibitors. Last year’s race raised $55,000 that was give to 25 non-profit organizations in the area.

“We need to do good deeds, and by doing so, we propel others forward to do the same,” says Jeff Hollis, CEO of Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center and treasurer of the Foundation. “We hope to see another good turnout at this year’s race from the communities we serve – including Fauquier, Culpeper, and Prince William – which will, in turn, help us give back.”

Local organizations set up exhibition tables for a mini-organizational fair, and live music rounds out the morning. Hot breakfast and coffee is provided to registrants. Bubbles and face paint for kids is planned.

“It is really moving to experience an event like this and watch it come together,” said Smith. “So many local and regional businesses contribute. The generosity and outpour of support for community non-profits that operate in the communities we serve is gratifying.”

Registration for sponsorship is open and available. Registration to participate in the race as a runner/walker is open.
