Active RVA

This is Active RVA

For over 20 years, Sports Backers has encouraged and supported Richmonders to adopt an active lifestyle. The impact has been transformational, as tens of thousands of participants in Sports Backers’ events and training teams have made physical activity a priority in their lives. In partnership with dozens of other organizations, we're working through policy, programming, and physical projects to improve quality of life for all Richmonders through active living.

Active RVA Certifications

Active RVA Certification and Awards program recognizes the Richmond region’s exceptional employers, schools, and early childhood education providers that are implementing innovative programs to promote physical activity. The Active RVA Awards presented by Cigna will take place on March 1.


Together with HandsOn of Greater Richmond, we coordinate a volunteer-matching tool to link volunteers that have time and talent with organizations that need them to support healthy kids, healthy communities, and a more Active RVA.


With your help, we can make this region a more attractive and vibrant place to live, where safe opportunities to walk, run, bike, or workout abound and where access to these activities are available to all—regardless of age or income level.
