Passion for the Community
The Foundation of Blue Ridge Orthopaedics was established in 2012 as Blue Ridge Orthopaedic Foundation, and renamed in 2018. This 501c3 is governed by a Board of community members and physicians, and is the non-profit arm of Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center. With a heart for helping Fauquier and surrounding counties, The Foundation of Blue Ridge Orthopaedics supports non-profit organizations who work to better the communities that Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center serves. Be it a recreational sports scholarship for underprivileged youth, mental health care for a person in need, or housing for the homeless, the Foundation of Blue Ridge Orthopaedics fills the gap by donating thousands of dollars every year to non-profits who have hands in the local communities. The Bodies in Motion 5k, 10k & Fun Run race held every fall is the Foundation’s flagship event.
Together. Community. Making a Difference.
Over the last seven years, The Foundation of Blue Ridge Orthopaedics has raised $270,000 for local nonprofits that serve community needs. In 2019, the Foundation of Blue Ridge Orthopaedics awarded 37 local nonprofit organizations with approximately $55,000. These non-profits include public high schools, homeless shelters, a pregnancy center, mental health, free clinic, food pantries, a citizen transportation system, and more.

Appreciation Celebration Community Give Back Event
December 4, 2019
Several weeks after the Bodies in Motion race, Blue Ridge gives all of this money back to the community in an invitation-only appreciation celebration. Invitees include Blue Ridge physicians and staff, local media, Blue Ridge partners, race sponsors, and non-profit awardees. Earlier this fall, non-profits were selected by way of an online submission. Since 2012, Blue Ridge has given $270,000 to the Fauquier/Culpeper/Gainesville communities by way of this annual give-back to non-profits.
