National Volunteer Week
April 13-17, 2019
Celebrate Service! National Volunteer Week, powered by Points of Light, is an opportunity to celebrate the impact of volunteer service and the power of volunteers to come together to tackle tough challenges, and build stronger, more resilient communities. Each year, we shine a light on the people and causes that inspire us to serve, recognizing and thanking volunteers who lend their time, talent and voice to make a difference in their communities.
National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each year, with thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week. Plan or attend an event to celebrate the impact of volunteers in your community, and inspire others to serve.
Volunteer Week Events:
- Voter Registration Event
- Easter Baskets
- March on Litter

Virginia 10 Miler

Join more than 4,000 runners on a historic course that has hosted participants from around the globe. The 10 mile run, 10 mile (2-Person) Relay, 4 mile run/walk, and Amazing Mile Children’s Run invite men, women, and children of all ages and abilities to participate.
Held Annually in the Fall Semester
Shave Your Head! St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events are where it all began. Nearly half a million shaved heads later, they’re still our most popular fundraiser. Kids with cancer often lose their hair during treatment. As a “shavee,” you’ll shave your head to show your support — and in the process, inspire friends and family to donate to childhood cancer research.
Sign up to go bald at one of the thousands of local head-shaving events, or join the “virtual event” to shave on your own.
Supported by the Interfraternity Council
