The founder of The Virginia Festival Of The Wheel chose the UVA Cancer Center as it’s beneficiary for many good reasons. The primary one is that he credits them for saving the life of someone extremely important to him. The work that they do in our community is extremely important and we want to not only raise funds for their research and continuing operation – we want to raise awareness of the center’s great work.
