Members of the UVa Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity ran across the Commonwealth Saturday morning during the 11th annual Run across Virginia Philanthropy Run.

Members of the fraternity ran more than 60 miles from Lynchburg, carrying the ceremonial game day ball to Scott’s Stadium on UVa's grounds.

The run was done to raise money for the V-Foundation, which deals with cancer research.

“Basing it around a football game, the Jimmy V was an obvious choice,” says James Hardardt, co-chair of the UVa chapter of Phi Gamma Delta. “It's just been something that we can build around, something bigger than ourselves to be a part of and it's been really awesome to run for that cause.”

Members of the Virginia Tech chapter began the event, starting in Blacksburg and handing the ball off in Lynchburg.
