ShounBach is pleased to announce that we are a proud sponsor of the Novant Health UVA Health System Prince William Half Marathon. The Prince William Half Marathon 2016 will be held at Jiffy Lube Live on Sunday, September 25th, 2016. The half marathon (13.1 miles) is a scenic course along rolling hills and attractive countryside through the Manassas National Battlefield Park. The half marathon both begins and finishes in the Jiffy Lube Live amphitheater. All race finishers will receive a custom race medal, a shoe bag, custom race bib, food and beverage coupons. Staggered registration pricing begins at $60.00. The first 1,000 registrants will receive a custom fleece blanket. There will be five water stations and first aid stations along with course and live music and post-race food at Jiffy Lube Live for both runners and spectators.

ShounBach is also excited to announce that we have partnered with the Sweet Julia Grace Foundation, who will be running the Beer Garden and concessions at the Runner’s Village Festival after the race. We will be providing them with 2,000 plastic stadium cups, to lower their overhead costs, allowing them to keep more of the money raised and use it to fund their special projects.
From the sweetjuliagracefoundation.org:
“The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation (SJGF), based out of Bristow, VA (in Northern Virginia), is a non-profit, all volunteer organization, INSPIRED by, and in honor of Julia Grace Knight. Julia lived 12 beautiful years inspiring everyone who knew her, read about her, and loved her. Despite the storms she faced because of a rare genetic disease called I-cell, Julia knew how to ‘Dance In The Rain.’ She lived in the moment, made life SWEET, and filled hearts with JOY…just by being her.
SJGF celebrates Julia’s amazing spirit by blessing children who are chronically or seriously ill, have special needs, or in the midst of a medical crisis. We call these children ‘Raindancers.’ We fill in the gaps, grant wishes, and work with the child’s family to provide carefully chosen, non-medical gifts that bring fun, comfort, improved quality of life, and of course JOY! On the day that we present the gifts to our ‘Raindancer’ we surprise them, their siblings and family with a specially-designed CELEBRATION that brings a whole lot of happy, creates special memories they will always cherish, and lets the family know..they are loved.”
