NVBCC is hosting a  ‘One Step Forward Walk/Run Challenge’ for the month of August. August is Black Business Month.  In an effort to raise awareness of the chamber , celebrate some big wins for the NoVA Region and do something fun in all of our communities, this Virtual Walk/Run Challenge is designed for everyone. Whether you are an avid runner , walk as a hobby or walking is part of your normal regimen, there is a level of participation for the community at large. There are 3 accomplishments we want to celebrate as a community at large:

  • The amount of funding coming into the Region through the American Rescue Plan for all communities. 
  • The number of Vaccinations in Virginia. 
  • The number of Black owned businesses in NoVA.

Please see the website for detailed race information and facts.
