On November 20, 2010, the inaugural McKenzie's Run was held in memory of McKenzie Wilson. Due to support of volunteers and the Jacksonville community, the run was a tremendous success with over 2,500 people participating in the 5K and one-mile fun run events. All funds raised went to the McKenzie Noelle Wilson Foundation, a nonprofit organization established in memory of McKenzie Wilson. The Foundation helps young people recognize their full potential through programs that encourage caring for others, giving to those in need, and growing in their own spirituality. Because of your support, McKenzie’s Run 2011 will be another great success!
