Since 2017, the Fox Trot 5K Run/Walk Series has united more than 10,000 community members and raised over $2 million to support The Michael J. Fox Foundation's high-impact research programs.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) recently announced the launch of our fourth annual Fox Trot 5K Run/Walk Series, a collection of family-friendly community events to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson's disease research. With eight unique events across the country, the 2020 Series promises to be the most impactful yet. As always, 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to MJFF’s urgent pursuit of improved treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s.
With an ambitious goal of $1.2 million in 2020, participants are encouraged to spread the word within their communities and fundraise. And since we’re raising the stakes, we’re offering a Fox Trot 5K Series duffel bag for participants who raise at least $250 through an official fundraising page.
Every runner, walker and supporter can make a difference. Will you join us at one of our 2020 events?
