Virginia Tech

This year we are pleased to announce that, on top of our commitment to the student of Hampton Roads, we are now allocating donations to impact the students of Virginia Tech, Kendra's alma mater. With this, we will be giving a scholarship(s) to an incoming Virginia Tech student who has lost a parent or guardian to cancer. The k5k family is very excited about this, as Virginia Tech was home to Kendra and many of her family members. In fact, Kendra's family was awarded with the 2019 Virginia Tech Family of The Year.

Our goal has always been, and always will be, to positively impact as many students as we can. Opening up a portion of the donations to Virginia Tech students gives us the opportunity for Kendra's name to grow through the place that she loved most. We will look to make an impact for the students of the school and the surrounding community. Now that we have a virtual option as well, we would love to see the students of Virginia Tech and the Blacksburg community participate in our mission to honor Kendra wherever the participants are. Please consider signing up, sponsoring, donating, or volunteering, and help us reach our goal of providing more scholarships to those students in need.
