Join Action News Jax at the 8th annual McKenzie’s Run on Saturday, November 18. The event raises money for the McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation and their efforts to help young people recognize their full potential.
The 5K run will start at 10 a.m. on Gator Bowl Boulevard and the fun run begins at 9:30 a.m. You can register for the run here. In addition to the race, there will be family-friendly activities such as live music, face painting, refreshments and more.
The race began in 2010 in memory of McKenzie Wilson. Since then, it has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the foundation and helped to launch two McKenzie’s Academic Resource Centers in Jacksonville. To learn more about the foundation, click here.
