Our mission: To raise awareness about Fragile X! We need your help to “Let ‘Em Know” and make that happen! This isn’t about how fast or slow you are, instead it’s about what you can do to raise awareness and “Let ‘Em Know”! We’ve created the perfect virtual event and tips for success to help you raise awareness and money for Fragile X from anywhere in the world!
What does a virtual run/walk mean?
You can complete it anywhere, anytime beginning July 1st and ending on July 31st, 2013. 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 your miles. All participants who register ($25 entry fee) by June 10th will receive a custom-designed athletic race shirt and (the first of many!) collectible NFXF Let ‘Em Know 5K race bib!
Not interested in running, walking or strolling but still want to participate for a chance at one of our great prizes? We've got you covered! You can create a fundraising page for no cost and qualify for the great prizes! (*but will not receive the official race shirt and bib).
