“The Dulles Greenway is committed to serving the Loudoun County community and we are honored to directly support the positive contributions that our 27 charity partners are making in our local community during this difficult time," said said Renée N. Hamilton, chief executive officer of TRIP II LP, which owns and operates the Greenway. 

The event raised over $156,000 for the 27 participating charities in Loudoun.  In addition, the Greenway made donations to their charity partners totaling $24,500, including $18,500 to the top fundraising organizations and the designated charities of the top fundraising individuals.  Another $6,000 will be donated to the chosen charity of in-person event age group winners, the Greenway said.
