McKenzie’s Run is an event aimed at raising awareness about The McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation and promoting unity within the Jacksonville community. We are excited to announce that the 9th Annual Run will take place on November 17th at TIAA Bank Field. 

The McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation has been established in memory of our beautiful daughter, McKenzie, who passed away on August 17, 2010. Because of your support and McKenzie’s legacy, the Foundation created McKenzie’s Academic Resource Centers (MARCs) to help young people recognize their full potential. The MARCs provide free after-school mentoring and tutoring programs to over 300 students living in two local communities and are a place for these students to grow and thrive.

Globally, the Foundation built three homes at the Okoa Refuge Orphanage in Uganda, Africa and in partnership with Okoa Refuge, provides medical care, food, shelter, education and love to over 75 children.  It is because of compassionate and kindhearted people like you that has allowed The McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation to have such a significant impact in Jacksonville and abroad. Join us to continue to enrich the lives of young people in our community and around the world by running or becoming a sponsor of this special event today!
