Each year, more than 3,500 women and girls, hundreds of volunteers, and dozens of community sponsors come together to support breast cancer care and research. The Charlottesville Women's Four Miler has become a community tradition—one that has raised more than $3 million for UVA Cancer Center and has become the largest all-women's race in Virginia.
One of the Charlottesville Track Club's signature events, the Women's Four Miler supports UVA Cancer Center's Breast Care Program, where multidisciplinary teams are committed to the early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of breast disease. UVA offers state-of-the art screening, including tomosynthesis (3D mammography), individually tailored breast care, and second opinions.
In conjunction with the Breast Care Program, UVA's High Risk Breast and Ovarian Cancer Program works with women who are at a higher risk for developing breast and ovarian cancer. Each woman receives a tailored approach based on her personal history and risk profile. She may also receive genetic testing and counseling.
Your support of the Charlottesville Women's Four Miler helps make all of this possible.
