On April 23rd, 2013, 1LT RJ Hess was killed in the service of his country in Pul-E-Alam, Afghanistan. 1LT Hess was a graduate of the University of Virginia Army ROTC program and was respected as a genuine leader by his peers. In memory of 1LT Hess, UVa Army ROTC established the 1LT Hess Leadership Award and Scholarship, which is presented annually to a Fourth Year Cadet who embodies the attributes of moral courage, integrity, and selfless service. By participating in the RJ Hess Memorial 5k, you can help develop future generations of leaders in the US Army.


We are honored to be helping again this year as the fundraising page to raise money for the RJ Hess Memorial 5k, which will be held on April 22, 2017 – the day prior to the four-year anniversary of RJ’s death. Our goal is to raise $5,000 to provide ROTC scholarship opportunities to the UVa ROTC program. Give whatever you can, or create your own personal page by clicking "Join the team" to launch your own page to your network of people to raise funds and awareness for the AMAZING inspiration RJ was. Thank you for any support you can offer!
