The Boxer Brief Battle 5K Run serves to raise awareness about colon cancer prevention while raising funs for colon cancer research, preventative screening, and advocacy. Plus, it’s just a lot of fun!
The 2014 Boxer Brief Battle was a huge success, raising over $42,000 for colorectal cancer prevention. Of these funds, $16,000 were donated to the local chapter of the America Cancer Society to help fund their research and save lives. HCB2 is using the additional money raised to partner with Access Now and offer a free colonoscopy clinic with the help of MEDARVA as a sponsor.

Dear Mr. Kupper,
As Hitting Cancer Below the Belt (HCB2) embarks on their third year of serving the Richmond community, I wanted to take the time to personally thank MEDARVA for their incredible involvement and continual support. MEDARVA was the first medical organization to become involved with our mission to prevent colorectal cancer in the Richmond community and your efforts have allowed us to expand our reach within the community.
Since 2013, MEDARVA has chosen to be the Event Sponsor of HCB2’s "Boxer Brief" 5K Run which has provided thousands of community members with colorectal cancer prevention education and increased awareness throughout the Richmond area. In addition, HCB2 is deeply grateful for MEDARVA’s willingness to host 2014's “Bringing Up the Rear Day” which demanded your commitment of time, money, and resources as we partnered to offer 22 free colonoscopies to the uninsured population within our community. A successful day of meeting a need to prevent colorectal cancer which would not have happened without your involvement.
I also wanted to thank you for helping to promote the work of HCB2. The promotional opportunities you have given the organization through published articles and newsletters has increased our visibility in the community and helped to spread our colorectal cancer prevention messages. It was been a true joy to work with you and your medical professionals at MEDARVA. Your team’s willingness to volunteer and join HCB2‘s efforts in providing community prevention activities is just another example of MEDARVA’s stellar ability to turn corporate responsibility into social action.
Thank you for your dedication in serving the community. HCB2 is energized about the endless possibilities as we continue to partner together with the vision of reducing the diagnosis and death rates of this country’s second leading cancer killer in men and women - colorectal cancer.
