Our R&A team strongly believes in giving back and being an active member of the community. It’s one of our core passion projects! Over the last decade, we’ve chosen to donate our time, professional services, and financial resources in support of various philanthropic organizations.
Over the past 7 consecutive years, we’ve been largely involved with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital ® and its annual Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. As a cause we care deeply about, we’ve raised and donated over $85K to date and look forward to reaching new heights each year. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies of cancer and neither will we.
In addition to St. Jude, we’ve also helped organizations like the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and The Eastern Shore, Crush Cancer, VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads, The Virginia Gentlemen Foundation, The King’s Daughters, Girls on the Run, and many others.
As a result of contributions like these, R&A was also named a 2014 Corporate VOLUNTEER Excellence Award honoree.

ABOUT OUR SUPPORTED ORGANIZATIONS
ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL®
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Together, we’re helping them drive the overall survival rate of childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. Each year, supporters nationwide join together in the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. This family-friendly walk/run helps raise funds to support the lifesaving mission of the hospital, where no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food. It commences in September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, with local events happening across the country and right here in Hampton Roads. We’ve proudly earned the #1 fundraiser spot in Hampton Roads for the past 5 years. It makes us feel alive to join arms with others in the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. We invite you to join our 2018 team, donate to our team page, and/or learn more about the hospital and how you can get involved, too. St. Jude is Finding cures. Saving children. ®
FOODBANK OF SOUTHEASTERN VIRGINIA AND THE EASTERN SHORE
The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore is one of the 200 network member food banks of Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief charity. You can support the Foodbank in many ways: donating food, funds or time. We are honored to support the Foodbank as a previous sponsor of their Taste of Hampton Roads event, as well as food donations through the Mayflower Marathon each November (over 700 pounds to date!). Additionally, R&A volunteers its time on a quarterly basis, providing meals to local individuals and families in need. Each of these efforts helps to eliminate hunger in our community.
We are always looking to help nonprofits in the Hampton Roads community, or nationwide. If you know of an organization that would be interested in working with us, we’d love to hear from you!
