Register for the 2021 Team Up! 5K with The Salvation Army

Legendary retired Washington Football Team Running Back, Brian Mitchell is again Teaming Up with The Salvation Army in support of their annual 5K event designed to help raise funds benefitting their afterschool learning enrichment program.  

The Salvation Army
 has been providing free afterschool programs to less fortunate children and their families since 2002. These programs offer character development activities, music instruction, homework help, on-site recreation and an overall safe place for our children to be, when there is nowhere else to go. 

In 2020, your support of our virtual event helped us to open our Learning Enrichment Center (LEC).  During the COVID-19 pandemic, while schools were virtual and/or only partially open, our LEC provided, 5-day, full day, on-site care for school-age children of working parents – a safe place to complete their school day with live instructional support, giving the opportunity for new friendships and to feel like a community again.


This coming Fall, it has been announced that Fairfax County Schools will return back to full-time, in-person instruction, which again demands quality, affordable after school programming for families. We are expanding our afterschool programming from previous years and will now be offering after care 5 days per week, with transportation from local schools to our facility. We can only do this with your help!
