This is our first year doing the 5k for Fragile X. Thank you so much for all of your support!
What is Let ‘Em Know?
It's a virtual run/walk to help raise awareness and funds for Fragile X from anywhere in the world! Ask anyone who’s participated: This is one of the easiest ways to raise awareness for Fragile X, so why not give it a shot?
It isn’t about how fast or slow you are. It’s about what you can do to raise awareness and “Let ’Em Know!”
What does “virtual run/walk” mean?
It means you can complete it anywhere and at anytime during the month of July, which is Fragile X Awareness Month. You can run or walk the 3.1 miles (5k) all at once or over the course of a week or the entire month.
Registrants will receive a custom-designed, collectible athletic race shirt and NFXF Let ’Em Know 5K race bib.
Are you ready for a challenge?
Last year, we received a challenge from the Blount family, and this year the Blounts are generously doing it again!
But they believe, just like us, that we can do even better this year. So, they’re challenging us to raise $60,000 for a $30,000 grant. That’s $1 for every $2 we raise.
Let’s get moving!
