THE STORY:

What is Fragile X?
Fragile X is a family of fragile x associated disorders:

Fragile X syndrome (FXS) — The most common cause of inherited intellectual disability and the most common known genetic cause of autism. Individuals with FXS can experience developmental delays ranging from mild to severe.

Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) — An adult onset (over 50) neurological disorder causing tremors and changes to balance, memory, mood and intellect.

Fragile X-associated primary ovarian insufficiency (FXPOI) — A condition that causes irregular menstrual cycles, infertility and premature menopause in females of reproductive age.

Fragile X-associated Disorders can be passed on by carriers of the FMR1 gene mutation who have no apparent signs of an FXD. In some families a number of individuals may be affected, while in other families a diagnosed individual may be the only known family member to exhibit symptoms. Also, in some families, only carriers are identified and there are no apparently affected family members.

What is a Virtual 5K?
Basically, it means you can complete it anywhere, anytime beginning July 1 and ending on July 31, 2014. You can run or walk the 3.1 miles (5K) all at once, over the course of a week or the entire month. This is on the honor system—you do not have to report or verify your miles!
