A letter from The Foundation of Blue Ridge Orthopaedics:


To our dearest community non-profits and race supporters.

We are not holding a race this year, and will not be holding an appreciation celebration in 2020 either. And, due to Covid-19, we had to cancel our spring non-profit summit as well. We hope to reinstate all of these events next year.

You are welcome to submit applications if you have them already completed, but note they are not on a first come first serve basis, so there is no rush. That email would be or

Covid-19 has really taken a hit on small businesses across the world. We are fortunate that our practices are still serving patients and we are recovering from the surgery moratorium earlier this year. Thank you to our patients who we continue to serve!

Thank you for your continued support. We are thrilled that our Foundation has gained visibility in these communities that we hold dear. We look forward to serving your non-profits again soon.
