Description

Join us for our largest fundraiser of the year - "RaceTrac's Run for Research 5K" - in support of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research! This family-friendly event, which will be held in RaceTrac's hometown of Atlanta, is open to runners and walkers of all levels. All proceeds, including 100% of registration fees, will go directly to fund The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s support of Parkinson's research. There will be free food, prizes, music and more at this event.

The theme is “RACE FOR FOX IN YOUR CRAZIEST SOCKS!” It’s time to break out those neon, knee-high, polka dotted socks you’ve been saving for a special occasion. The crazier the socks, the better - as long as they aren’t smelly!

There’s also a fundraising component through the Michael J. Fox Foundation that participants can select during registration to create teams with your friends and families and raise money for the cause!

More than 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease today, so lace up your shoes and show your support!
