By joining The Michael J. Fox Foundation's Fall Virtual 5K/10K, you are helping us reach to our ultimate finish line and close a gap on a cure for Parkinson's disease. 

Runners/Walkers of all experience, abilities and speeds are welcome!


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
a 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!
