The Fitness Equation in South Riding is excited to announce the inaugural Fall Fitness Festival Charity Event benefiting Headstrong on September 28, 2019 from 10am-2pm. Headstrong provides post-9/11 military veterans with free mental health care. For every soldier lost in combat, 25-30 take their own lives. On average, it costs $5000 to treat one veteran. With your support, Headstrong can extend their proven program to reach more veterans in need. Your support goes a long way in helping them return home and finding renewed meaning and joy in their lives.
The Fitness Equation, located at 43360 Defender Dr. Chantilly, will open its doors to the public for a FREE Day For All! We will have fitness classes going on every half hour outside and inside the gym from Bootcamp, Zumba, Yoga and more! Many contests will take place like Strong Man, Ninja Warrior, Tug of War and a basketball free throw contest! There will be live music and a Kid’s Zone with Bounce Houses, Touch-a-Truck, glitter tattoos, craft centers and more! A silent auction will take place as well as raffles going on every hour with great prizes like a one-year TFE membership valued at over $1,000, a Redskins game day package valued at over $350; all to benefit Headstrong. Food trucks from Village Café & Kona Ice will be on site and Uncle Rockers BBQ will be grilling out on the spot! A percentage of all food sales will be donated back to Headstrong. Local vendors will also be on site selling and promoting their products. Lastly, Redskins Hall of Fame Cornerback, Darrell Green will be on site for a meet and greet photo session! We kindly request no autographs. We are hoping this will be a yearly event that we can build upon with your support!
Annual Meeting & Community Leadership Awards
In January of 2020, we will celebrate the leadership of our 2019 Chair of the Board, Lisa Kimball (The Arc of Loudoun), and welcome in our new Chair for 2020, Stacey Metcalfe (Inova Loudoun Hospital) and honor the Community Leadership Awards finalists and winners.
Annual Real Estate Event
While Loudoun outperforms other Virginia counties on most economic measures, we still face many challenges to our future prosperity. Whether it’s our investment in Metro, a housing affordability crisis or attracting a millennial workforce, Loudoun’s challenges demand effective solutions.
On Monday, August 19, 2019, we hosted our 37th Annual Golf Classic event at the award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf course, The Club at Creighton Farms. This course is one of the finest on the Eastern Seaboard — is nothing short of spectacular. This event has been Loudoun County’s Premier business golf tournament for three decades.
For the past 8 years, this casual, networking tournament pairs you and a partner against a field of over 30 two-man teams in a progressive four month tournament. Designed with the busy professional in mind, each event consists of a 9-hole round after work, followed by a short networking reception to get you home in time to put the kids to bed. The team with the lowest cumulative score after four events is the champion. The 2019 Winners were Tom Reed and Greg Wells. Congratulations! Stay tuned for the 2020 Golf Tour dates.
Small Business Awards
Join us on November 8, 2019 for the Loudoun Small Business Awards, for our 25th Anniversary of these prestigious honors celebrating the best small businesses, entrepreneurs and nonprofit organizations in our Loudoun community. Winners will be announced in front of a live audience of more than 400 of Loudoun’s top business and community leaders.
Superhero 5k & Kids Fun Run
As a Signature Chamber event, the Superhero 5k Run and Kids Fun Run offers companies a great way to show Loudoun County their commitment to healthy living for your employees and our community.
The Loudoun Chamber will honor local heroes, from Public Safety personnel to ordinary citizens, for their courageous, often lifesaving actions in 2019 at the 34th Annual Valor Awards ceremony. The entire Loudoun County business community will be invited to attend these Annual Valor Awards to help honor these dedicated public servants for their selfless acts of heroism and commitment to protecting our families, our neighbors and our community!
