Outpace Parkinson’s 5 is the fifth annual 5K run/walk to raise awareness of PD while also raising funds for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Jane was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2011, and we have joined thousands of people around the globe who have become Team Fox fundraisers to speed a cure for Parkinson’s. When you register for this year's 5K or simply give today, your dollars go straight to MJFF research programs.
Outpace Parkinson’s 5 is going virtual! The coronavirus, far as we know, cannot be transmitted through cyberspace! Online registration is available on active.com now through midnight, April 15th, but T-shirts and participation awards will be ordered only for sponsors and those completing registration by midnight, April 7th. Runners should choose their own method of completing 3.1 miles and report the time to http://tiny.cc/Outpace by 9 am on 18 April. Walkers the same for completing 1 mile. No awards for times, but Black Bag points assigned. Drive-by pickup of t-shirts and awards at 175 Rock Glenn Rd. (wear gloves!) from 10 AM to noon on race day, which remains 18 April.
Online registration will be available at active.com/athens-ga/running/distance-running-races/5th-annual-outpace-parkinson-s-5k-and-1-mile-fun-run-2020

Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease — a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone.
There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. But through your support of Team Fox, you can help change this.
Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). MJFF accelerates high-impact science through smart risk taking and problem solving with a commitment to urgency and efficiency.
Best - Jane and Jack
