RaceTrac's Run for Research

RaceTrac's Run for Research

According to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, six million people worldwide live with Parkinson's disease. Joining the effort to eliminate this disease in our lifetime, RaceTrac is bringing back its annual 'Run for Research' 5K race on September 24 at Truist Park in Atlanta. All proceeds, including 100 percent of registration fees, will go directly to the Michael J. Fox Foundation's support of Parkinson's research and new therapies. For more information, visit racetrac.com/About-Us/Run-For-Research. The event begins at 7:30 a.m. with a 1K run/walk, followed by the 5K run/walk at 8 a.m. Free food, prizes, music and more are included with the price of registration. Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are invited to register for both 5K and 1K at runsignup.com/RaceTrac5K. Run for Research is a pre-qualifier for the 2023 Peachtree Road Race. The theme of this year's race is "Race for Fox in your Craziest Socks," and participants are encouraged to show their enthusiasm and support by wearing their brightest, loudest knee-high socks. RaceTrac's Run for Research is part of the company's wider RaceTrac Gives Back initiative which supports several causes that help make people's lives simpler and more enjoyable. Each year in April, during Parkinson's Awareness Month, guests have generously added one dollar to their in-store purchases or selected a special, one-dollar candy bar to support the Michael J. Fox Foundation. During one week in April, all coffee proceeds are also donated directly to the foundation.
