Show your 757 Pride

Buy a mask!

Mask up and show your pride for #the757! Comfortable, washable and in-demand! A special shout-out goes to the talented students from Princess Anne High School in Virginia Beach who designed the artwork and to the Hampton Roads Alliance for helping to get this project off the ground.


Tell us your story!

Are you or someone you know passionate for #the757 and dedicated to our community? Whether you are a boomerang, native, or transplant, we want to hear why you call this region home.


Play the game!

We partnered with EdLogics, the creators of @healthier757 to create the Did You Know? game about our region. Based on the simple idea that when you know more positive facts about where you live, work and play, you’re more likely to share that positive story with others! Playing gives you the chance to win cool, local prizes! And who doesn't love that?! 


Learn About the "Why"

Envision 2020 was a comprehensive 9-month research initiative that helped lay the foundation for our work. Our aim is to foster a new understanding of or renewed sense of pride in all the unique characteristics of this special place we call home.
