Camp Holiday Trails 5K

Camp Holiday Trails 5K race has raised nearly $100K over the past 30 years. A great example of UVA Medical Students working together in a fun way to help others.

30 years ago, a Medical student had an idea, a plan, and the ambitiion to make it happen.  He created the the fundraising foot race known as Camp Holiday Trails 5K which has been run each year since.

Organized this year by both Nursing and Medicine Sstudents the race looks to be as fundraisingly fun as ever.
