McKenzies Run

McKenzie’s Run is one of the main ways our Foundation works to unite our community, while simultaneously raising support and awareness.

Celebrate our annual Teal Day with us on March 22nd to honor McKenzie’s birthday! Each year, youth in McKenzie clubs and across Jacksonville will be wearing teal on this day as they fundraise and do random acts of kindness to “paint the world teal”—all inspired by McKenzie’s spirit of love. This is a great chance to spread news of the Foundation and McKenzie’s continuing spirit when people stop and ask why they are being cared for. It will also help you reach your full potential by showing you how wonderful it feels to be kind to others.

CHALLENGE: Wear Teal and Be Kind!

“We rise by lifting others.”
-Robert Ingersoll



We’re counting on the generosity of people like YOU to help us continue to support young people in recognizing their full potential.
