MJFF's Virtual 5K/10K
for Parkinson's Research
DATE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2020
By joining The Michael J. Fox Foundation's 2020 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 levels, abilities and speeds are welcome!
Due to COVID-19, The Michael J. Fox Foundation's Fox Trot series is shifting gears and going virtual! Fox Trot communities in Los Angeles, Austin, Chicago, Twin Cities, New York, Bay Area, Boston, Orlando and beyond will unite on October 3 to run/walk together virtually toward a cure for Parkinson's disease.
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: Welcome Package via Mail
Once you register you will receive a welcome package in the mail. Welcome packages include your 5K/10K t-shirt, bib number and other fun surprises. Please note, shipments will begin in mid-September.
*We have now moved our deadline to register and receive your welcome package in time to September 20. Please note, any registrations after this date may not receive their package in time for the event.
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.
*The top five team and individual fundraisers will be recognized on our website and awarded special prizes after the event date. As well, individuals who raise above $250 will receive an MJFF branded duffel bag.
Step 4: Time to run/walk!
Set a time to run/walk on October 3, or on your own schedule. You can run/walk outdoors or indoors, alone or with a group of friends/family - just remember to be smart, use your judgement and practice appropriate social distancing.
Step 5: 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, 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 6: 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!
