Outpace Parkinson's

Welcome to My Page

Outpace Parkinson's

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 are turning their passions into 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.

The event will occur at the Sandy Creek Nature Park, Pavilion 2, on April 18, 2020. Starting time for the walk is 8 am and for the 5K run 8:30 am. On-site registration beginning at 7 am. Families, teams, dogs, recreational and semi-professional runners—all are welcome!

Online registration will be available at active.com, specifically: https://www.active.com/athens-ga/running/distance-running-races/5th-annual-outpace-parkinson-s-5k-and-1-mile-fun-run-2020

On-site registration on race-day will also be available.

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
