Come join the Higher Achievement Young Professionals Board for the 2nd annual Field Day RVA! Field Day RVA is a community fundraising event for Higher Achievement, a nonprofit organization partnered with Richmond Public Schools and Henrico Public Schools to provide academic enrichment in order to close the achievement gap during the pivotal middle school years.

Get back to your youth and compete in teams of 5-8 people in field day events just like when you were in middle school! The competition will include a water balloon toss, three-legged race, capture the flag, corn hole, and, of course, tug of war. There will be prizes, music, beer and food trucks, and more!

Tickets are $40 and include entry, a t-shirt and one free beer ticket. Teams are encouraged to dress up for the uniform contest judged by a surprise guest judge!

NEW THIS YEAR: Field Goal Kicking Competition

By popular request, we have added a Field Goal Kicking Competition to this year's event. For $10, compete to make the most field goals out of 5 (If there is a tie, we'll go for distance). There will be a prize! When registering for Field Day RVA you can pre-register for the competition. Day-of registration will be available as well. And, good news! You don't have to be on a team to participate - spectators are welcome to compete in this event as well!
