How Does a virtual event work?

Step 1: Register
Registration for each Adult participant is $40 USD
Registration for each Child participant is $20 USD (ages 13 and younger)

We encourage all participants to raise additional funds, though not required. Your contributions go a long way: 100% of the proceeds go straight to high-impact research programs to speed a cure for Parkinson's.

Step 2: Fundraise!
Know that you are running/walking for a great cause - finding a cure for Parkinson's disease -and we need your help to raise money for research. Need tips on how to fundraise? Check out our Fundraising Tips page

Earn Your Swag!

Individuals who raise $100 USD or more on their fundraising page will receive
a limited MJFF 20th Anniversary T-Shirt. 

Individuals who raise $550 USD or more on their fundraising page will receive
MJFF Branded item.


The top five team and individual fundraisers will be recognized on our website and awarded special prizes after the event date. 

Step 3: Welcome Package via Mail
Once you register you will receive a welcome package in the mail. Welcome packages include your 5K/10K running bib and other fun surprises. Please note, shipments will begin in mid-September.

Step 4: Earn your Virtual Badges!
Participants can earn digital badges along their fundraising journey by reaching a major milestone. Badges are awarded when you reach your fundraising goal, make a self donation, become a team captain, and more. Digital badges will appear on your fundraising page so others can see your accomplishments!

Step 5: Time to run/walk!
Set a time to run or walk on October 2*

You can run/walk outdoors or indoors, alone or with a group of friends/family.
As always, remember to be smart, use your judgement and practice social distancing.

*October 2 not work for you? Create your own schedule for the weekend!

Step 6: Share with us
Throughout your training and after you complete the 5K/10K, be sure to take a photo of yourself in your MJFF swag and post it on social media tagging @michaeljfoxorg on Instagram and Twitter and @michaeljfoxfoundation on Facebook.

For sample messaging, downloadable images and fun ways to engage your followers before, during and after the run/walk, check out our Social Media Resources.

Step 7: Run it forward
By participating in our virtual run/walk event, 100 percent of proceeds from the registration fee and your fundraising pages will be used to fund high-impact programs to speed better treatments and a cure for Parkinson's disease. No donation is too small, so thank you!
