The Cynthia and Mark Lorenzoni Volunteer Service Award

In 1983, Cynthia and Mark Lorenzoni started what is now the largest all-women’s race in Virginia, the Charlottesville Women’s Four Miler. Since 1993, the race has raised more than $4 million for the UVA Breast Care Center.

After more than 35 years, the W4M has become more than just a race—it is a community celebration that highlights the very best of Charlottesville. This is in large part thanks to the commitment and generosity of the Lorenzonis.

To honor them, the UVA Cancer Center has created the Cynthia and Mark Lorenzoni Volunteer Service Award, to be given to an outstanding volunteer at UVA Cancer Center starting in 2018. The award is intended to recognize an individual who has volunteered for UVA Cancer Center over a sustained period of time, and made positive contributions to both the advancement and image of UVA Cancer Center.
