As National Fragile X Awareness Month for 2013 winds down, we want to thank everyone for making our first NFXF Let ‘Em Know Virtual 5K a resounding success! With your help getting the word out to friends and family, you joined with us in not only walking and jogging but sprinting past our $40,000 matching challenge grant goal, making this our biggest Awareness Month fundraiser ever! Together, we not only exceeded our fundraising goal, but our 300+ Let ‘Em Knowers traversed a collective total of over 1,000 miles! That’s 1,000 miles for Fragile X!

A special thanks goes to the Blount and Justus families for setting the challenge grants, and to Warren Global Conferencing for sponsoring our Virtual 5K.

If you haven’t contributed, there is still time to give to our National Fragile X Awareness Month campaign!

Finally, a note of appreciation for all the photos you shared with us for this First Annual NFXF Let ‘Em Know Virtual 5K. Enjoy our Let ‘Em Know gallery—and use it as inspiration to keep on training in preparation for next year!
