WHAT IS A VIRTUAL 5K?
Basically, it means you can complete it anywhere, anytime NOW through July 31, 2015. 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!

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 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.
